The Story of Red River Land.
Rolfsrud, Erling Nicolai
This resource book provides the teacher with a summary narrative of the history and the development of the Red River Basin, a lakebed plain that extends from the Canadian border into Minnesota and North Dakota. There are many historical topics covered: the geology, cultures of the Sioux and Chippewa, fur trading, exploration, settlement of the valley, military involvement, Indian uprisings, agricultural development, and the influence of trade and industrial development. This book can be used to supplement the material covered in the "Red River Land" television series developed by this ESEA Title III Pace Project. (SBE)
