About the Author

Laural A. Bidwell grew up in Connecticut but left the rolling hills of the East years ago for the wide-open spaces of the American West. She first lived in Colorado Springs, then moved on to Denver before finally finding her home in the Black Hills of South Dakota. 

Like many, Laural discovered South Dakota more by accident than on purpose: on a rambling road trip, drifting north and east across the plains, she glanced at her map and realized she was within an hour of South Dakota, a state she'd never before visited. She decided to head for the border town of Ardmore to get gas and stay the night. 

Ardmore had (and still has) a population of four. There was no gas station. There was no place to stay. The dot on the map was larger than the town. Low on gas, she forged on to the next town on the map—Hot Springs—where she got gas, found a place to stay, and discovered the Black Hills. It was love at first sight: from the prairie grasslands and rolling hills of the south to the otherworldly badlands of the east to the craggy peaks and granite spires of the north, the Black Hills offer an amazing diversity of outdoor opportunities and scenic beauty.

Now living in Hot Springs and playing in the beautiful Black Hills, Laural still enjoys road trips, as well as writing and spending time with her husband, Jim; her golden retrievers, Willow and Maverick; and her cat, Spike.

This is the best guide to the Black Hills region. It is organized by WHERE you are. So you can get the answer to questions like: "I'm in Hill City SD, where should I stay? Where is a good place to eat?" I am biased, since I wrote the book. However, the book has received great reviews. Unfortunately, only one of the reviews on this site is real.

I purchased this before traveling to South Dakota and the Mount Rushmore/Black Hills area. I was able to plan the trip to get the fullest enjoyment of the scenery, the communities, and the amenities of the area.
