Professor Lauck wrestles with Frederick Jackson Turner's theories on westward expansion. He also deals with the myth of the left leaning populists developing in South Dakota when in fact, it was more of a Republican culture at that time. He also deals very carefully with some of Bishop Marty's papers and talks about the Catholic-Protestant development in South Dakota. This is a national history book in the sense that he deals with the presidential campaigns and presidents and what they said about South Dakota.
Professor Lauck received a fellowship from Yale University's Beinecke Library to do part of his research and he has several new South Dakota sources. This is one of the best professionally researched and written books on South Dakota history that I have ever seen and I am very grateful for it.
