Quality Books from Ft. Mandan

Looking for Dad, Grandpa, the historian of the family?  It can be hard to find something new that they haven't read - but these are guaranteed to please and be refreshingly new, rich material they can dig into as soon as that wrapping paper is off!

I asked my friend and the President of The Dakota Institute of the Lewis & Clark Fort Mandan Foundation in North Dakota, David Borlaug, to personally recommend two new books for you:

"Lewis and Clark Among the Nez Perce: Strangers in the Land of the Nimiipuu," by Allen Pinkham and Steve Evans is one of our newest releases. It's the first book on the Lewis & Clark Expedition told "through Indian Eyes," relying upon the stories passed down through the past 200 years by tribal elders. CLICK HERE to buy a beautiful hardcover for $29.95.

Don't miss "Not All Heroes: An Unapologetic Memoir of the VietNam War," by Gary Skogen, a retired LAPD detective and North Dakota native. It's a "M*A*S*H-like romp through, with serious overtones of the seamy underside of war, told by a drug enforcement agent. Skogen's tour in Vietnam was, as he says, the best year of his life.  CLICK HERE  to buy for $29.95.

Both are available at www.FortMandan.comalong with many other books and DVD's. It is well worth your time to take a quick perusal and order today.

 Last years picks can be found HERE and it's quite a nice collection. Please check that out too.
