About the Author
Like many, Laural discovered South Dakota more by accident than on purpose: on a rambling road trip, drifting north and east across the plains, she glanced at her map and realized she was within an hour of South Dakota, a state she'd never before visited. She decided to head for the border town of Ardmore to get gas and stay the night.
Ardmore had (and still has) a population of four. There was no gas station. There was no place to stay. The dot on the map was larger than the town. Low on gas, she forged on to the next town on the map (Hot Springs) where she got gas, found a place to stay, and discovered the Black Hills. It was love at first sight: from the prairie grasslands and rolling hills of the south to the otherworldly badlands of the east to the craggy peaks and granite spires of the north, the Black Hills offer an amazing diversity of outdoor opportunities and scenic beauty.
Now living in Hot Springs and playing in the beautiful Black Hills, Laural still enjoys road trips, as well as writing and spending time with her husband, Jim; her golden retrievers, Willow and Maverick; and her cat, Spike.

On the negative side, this guide includes information that is simply wrong and easy to fact check. Case in point, the book includes a photo of a Western Meadowlark with a caption describing it as South Dakota's state bird. South Dakota's state bird is the Chinese Ringneck Pheasant. This is an EASY fact to check and was missed by the author and the editor. The book also misses important information regarding one of the Black Hills' busiest restaurants, the Alpine Inn. This restaurant does not accept credit cards, but has an ATM on site.
Had "The Insider's Guide to the Black Hills" had a more recent edition, I would have purchased it instead. It has been a more reliable source for planning memorable trips to the Black Hills.
