Overview

Take a journey across time in the fabled Black Hills of South Dakota and Wyoming. Author/photographer Paul Horsted logged thousands of miles to seek out and "rephotograph" the original sites of more than 160 images made here between 1874 and 1935. In this book you will find rare and fascinating photographs of early expeditions, the gold rush, growing towns, tourist meccas and the unique beauty of the Black Hills. The historic images are matched with carefully composed views from today to create a near-mystical connection between past and present. The book includes "then and now" photos of towns such as Custer, Deadwood, Rapid City, Spearfish, Sundance and more. Places such as Mt. Rushmore, Devil's Tower, Custer State Park, Harney Peak and other landmarks are also shown. Seldom-published images of military expeditions and early explorers are also included in this remarkable oversized book.
