Land of the Burnt Thigh Book Discussion

Tue. 14 Aug, 2018 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Celebrate the pleasure of reading with a discussion of Land of the Burnt Thigh by Edith Eudora Kohl. In Land of the Burnt Thigh, girl homesteaders, Edith Eudora Ammons and her sister Ida Mary, moved to central South Dakota in 1907 near the Lower Brule Indian Reservation. These two young women found a community of homesteaders who were eager to help them succeed at what looked to be impossible: living in a tiny tarpaper shack on 160 waterless, sunbaked, and snowblasted acres for eight months until they could prove up their claim. Within weeks Edith was running a newspaper, Ida Mary was teaching school, and the two were helping others. This story of South Dakota is told with simplicity, directness, and an understanding of quiet heroic elements. The discussion will be facilitated by Dr. Joanna Jones at the Homestake Adams Research and Cultural Center; 6:00 p.m.; admission by donation. Advance reservations recommended. Call 605-722-4800 for reservations. Books are available at the Homestake Adams Research and Cultural Center library to borrow and return following the discussion.

History on the Lawn: Water Wars

Fri. 24 Aug, 2018 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

How dry was it in the 30s? By May of 1934 there was so little moisture that a stock pond northeast of Belle Fourche was already drying up. A dispute arose over ownership and possessory rights to the pond. A cattle rancher was watering his stock at the pond. A neighbor was also trying to water his sheep at the pond. Someone cut a hole through the dam that held the pond. One morning a group of the sheep men apprehended the cattle ranchers hired hand. A fracas ensued, and the hired hand was tied to a lariat behind his horse. Someone spooked the horse. It took off at a gallop, and the hired hand was dragged over cactus, sagebrush, and rocks for over half a mile. His assailants were charged with riot and assault with intent to murder. This presentation will deal with the incident itself, the criminal proceedings, and the civil lawsuits that followed. Come and learn about this twentieth century event with local historian Wayne Gilbert. Bring a lunch and enjoy the Historic Adams House lawn; 12:00 noon; admission by donation. In case of inclement weather, the lecture will be moved to the Homestake Adams Research and Cultural Center (HARCC).
