In 1972, one of the worst natural disasters in Black Hills history left a path destruction and forever changed the landscape of our community.
Fifty years later, a new coffee-table book from the journalists of The Rapid City Journal features photos that look back at the events leading up to the storm, the widespread devastation, and our community’s spirit to rebuild.
This is a Christmas gift. I have not looked at it yet
Was everything and more. Great lay out and easy captions. Would be a great gift. I’m even considering getting another for a gift to my parents who remember this flood, I was a toddler. Thank you for a great book.
Brought back tons of memories. It makes me long for the days before the flood. The subsequent massive expansion and growth following the recovery really destroyed what had previously been a nice, friendly, pleasant town and put it on a track to becoming "Denver Light".
