    Truly was a Black Hills Family Funguide!

    This book was easy to read and nicely organized. It had sections for family fun, interesting historic sites, animals, and of course where to find the wild west shows! Reading it before we left gave the family the chance to choose activities they thought would be fun before we even got to the Hills. I have already passed it on to friends who are planning the trip next year.
