"A book of stories, a book of prayer, a book to be read meditatively and well," DAKOTA offers a timeless tribute to a place in the American landscape that is at once desolate and sublime, harsh and forgiving, steeped in history and myth. From the award-winning author of AMAZING GRACE, DAKOTA is Kathleen Norris at her most thoughtful, her most discerning, her best. She gives us, once again, a rare "gift of hope and balance, a place to begin" (Chicago Tribune) and assurance that wherever we go, we chart our own spiritual geography.

This book presents a bird’s eye view of the transition of a segment of the Louisiana Purchase into the states of Montana, North Dakota, and Wyoming. It offers historical data meshed with Western poetry, with each one of the book’s twentythree poems contributing a relevant insight. Topics covered include, among others, the Civil War in Montana, the “Big Die-Up” of 1886-1887, the myth and reality of the American West, and the end of the homesteading era. According to the author, Dakota is more than a collection of Western verse- it is a raft with twenty-three supporting logs that has skimmed o’er the river of Western history.

HE CAME WEST HAUNTED BY DEATH AND GRIEF... In 1884, a Harvard-educated legislator from New York set off for Dakota Territory. Staggered by the deaths of his mother and wife on the same tragic night, Teddy Roosevelt was returning to a place he had visited the year before, a place that had struck him with its fierce beauty and its bounty of big game and big opportunity. By the Little Missouri River, Teddy Roosevelt established a ranching empire, and soon stood at the center of a storm... AND IN A VIOLENT LAND, HE WAS REBORN... Less than a decade after an Indian rebellion and the Battle of the Little Big Horn, Dakota was being settled by the brave, the ambitious, and the restless. While some men were grabbing power, some were getting away with murder. For Roosevelt, using local cowboys and transplanted Easterners as his ranch hands, this was a place to make his mark, to make a stand and to look a killer in the eye. And this was a time to bring wild Dakota into the heart of America...

After a seven year absence, veteran of the Apache Wars Mark Talbot returns to the Dakota Territory to reunite with his brother on their family's cattle ranch to find some peace after fighting and bloodshed for over half of a decade. But when he returns, peace isn't what he finds. Talbot's brother was murdered five years earlier when the Double-X ranch began its quest for sole reign of the Bench, a fertile and prosperous region in the Dakota Territory. And Double-X is at it again. The greedy ranch owner, King Magnusson, wants all of the grazing land in the Bench for his cattle. But he doesn't just take the land, he takes lives. One by one Magnusson kills off the local ranchers via his hired gun, the blue-eyed demon, Jose del Torro, a.k.a. the Storm. Del Torro, the devil personified, has the shot of an ace and the cunning of a fox. Trouble follows Talbot like flies follow cows: Talbot meets beautiful young Suzanne Magnusson, King's beloved daughter on the train home. Suzanne wants Talbot, and she always gets what she wants. And then there's Jacy Kincaid, the little-girl-next-door, who has grown into a stunning woman, who fights Magnusson and his crew with all she has. Tangled in Suzanne's lust, Jacy's love, and King's thirst for power, Talbot finds himself not only confronted with a land war, but a love war too. Del Torro and Magnusson together eradicate any hope of Talbot finding peace until he takes control. Fighting once more.

This book will show readers how to find and prepare wonderful foods full of healthy fats. Featured are delicious recipes for grass-fed buffalo and wild game, vegetables, grains, and salads straight from the prairie.Many people have tried various diets over the years in an attempt to lose weight, only to regain the pounds after going off the diets. The problem with popular diets is that they are not nutritionally sound. The Dakota Diet is different.The foods that the Plains Indians hunted and gathered were rich in healthy omega-3 fatty acids. Today, our diet contains low levels of omega-3s and is loaded with omega-6s. As we forage at the grocery store, the foods that we bring home contain up to twenty times more omega-6s than omega-3s. Omega-3 fats counter the unhealthy effects of omega-6s and are found in abundance right here in America's backyard, on the plains of the Dakotas.The Dakota Diet can help readers rediscover the benefits of healthy fats and enjoy hearty American foods, while losing weight and improving their health. This is because:o The Dakota Diet is high in good omega-3 fatty acids found in abundance in flaxseed, soy, buffalo, fresh fish, and wild game.o The Dakota Diet focuses on nutrient-dense, low-calorie foods, such as fresh fruits and vegetables and whole grains.o The meat in the Dakota Diet is from animals allowed to graze on grasses, such as buffalo, which has less fat and fewer calories than meat from grain-fed animals and is loaded with essential nutrients.o The Dakota Diet is high in soluble fiber found in beans, barley, and oats-foods that help balance cholesterol in the body.
