The Germans from Russia Heritage Collection is pleased to present
this humorous book by Tony Bender, Ashley, ND, a native of Frederick,
SD. He is the publisher of the Ashley Tribune and the Wishek
Star. Bender's column has won seven North Dakota Newspaper Association
first place awards since 1990.
Lynn Schroeder, publisher of the Cavalier Chronicle, Cavalier,
ND, writes: "Tony's view of the world and the people in it
is often unique. He has the wonderful ability to translate those
views into stories that can make you laugh out loud or reflect in
quiet silence. Tony's story-telling talent has been a welcome addition
to our newspaper for many years. His columns are a constant source
of compliments from our readers."
Allan Burke, publisher of the Emmons County Record, Linton,
ND, writes: "To be sure, he is a humorist. His puckish wit,
his satire and audacity have long had his readers laughing out loud.
But Tony's ability to mesmerize readers with essays which touch
on the losses in life is equally remarkable. As readers have laughed
over the years with Bender, so have they shed tears. Tony's stories,
his original style, are a distinct reflection of life on the prairie.
Call him a humorist, a philosopher if you will. He is both. Tony
Bender is a powerful new voice of the Dakotas."
