My wife's father served in the CCC and was stationed in the Black Hills. He often spoke to her when she was a child about how beautiful it was in the Black Hills. My wife and I enjoyed the photos in the book. It was a way she could make a connection with what her father had described to her. There were lots of photos in the book.

I'm a big fan of these "Images of America" books from Arcadia. Each of them has such a wonderful and tight focus. And they seem to be curated by local historians who really know their turf. It is as if somebody went around to every historical archive in a given area, pulled out all the most compelling and important images, and then gave them to you to keep.

This book provides a surprisingly imimate look at what it would have been like to live and work for the CCC in the Dakotas.

This is really nothing but a picture book of just a few of the CCC camps in the Black Hills. They're good pictures, but I was looking for more of a narrative history.
