Overview

This exciting new series gives young readers their first in-depth look at the United States. Each volume provides a colorful, comprehensive portrait of a state's history, people, land, economy, and government. Readers will enjoy the "Fun Facts" sprinkled throughout each book and learn even more about state facts, symbols, and famous people. A chapter on "Things to See and Do" explores each state's unique places and activities. Each title includes a time line, biographies of notable people, informative maps and charts, a glossary, recommended books and Web sites, and an index.

Long after wooly mammoths roamed the territory, South Dakota became a U.S. territory. Fierce fighting between the Native peoples and white settlers often occurred in fights over land. East of the enormous Missouri River that divides the state, small mammals thrive on the rolling plains. West of that river, large mammals rule the steep hills known as buttes. The Black Hills and Badlands attract many tourists, as does the famous carved sculpture of Mount Rushmore. Workers still swarm over the even larger, in-progress mountaintop tribute to Chief Crazy Horse. And the once wild town of Deadwood is now a popular tourist destination.
