In Search of Secret South Dakota
Would you like to know more about South Dakota? Whether you live here or are just visiting, this book will take you on different hikes, swimming experiences and canoe trips throughout the state. Edith-Maria Redlin, a German immigrant who has lived for over a decade in Rapid City, likes to visit places abundant with wildflowers and wildlife. You will also read about the only rattlesnake she has encountered so far-in her own front yard. By reading this book, you will experience a ghost town, an abandoned gold mill and a mineral bath where healing water gushes to the surface at 110 degrees Fahrenheit. You will read about unique historic details, tough women of the West, unusual geographic regions and peculiar features of the landscape. Spine-tingling stories of the old cemetery in Galena or of a dark ravine, Sica Hollow, go hand in hand with sunny hikes on exquisite nature paths. Whether Redlin is swimming in Devil's Bathtub or tracing the inventions of gold mining enterprises of the old days, this book is informative as well as entertaining-a must-read for anybody who wants to explore sites beyond the regular tourist attractions of South Dakota.
