Using over 200 vintage images, author Peggy Sanders takes readers back in time to the camps and escapades of the Civilian Conservation Corps. Mrs. Sanders is the author of two other books from the Images of America series, Fall River County and Hot Springs, (SD) and Wind Cave National Park, (SD). She is a farm/ranch wife and author from Oral, SD.
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.
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.
