By David Paukert
Four Color Print Group, Louisville, Kentucky, 104 pages, 2013, hardcover.
This new book is a complete compendium of David Paukert’s most beautiful and moving images of the last 20 years. Journey across the back roads of North Dakota as seen through the lens of North Dakota photographer, David Paukert. Visit prairie churches, farmsteads, school house and small towns that define the rich heritage of North Dakota’s people.
David’s book also includes lovely poetry which accompanies many photographs by North Dakota farmer and poet, Terry Jacobsen. Many stories and thoughts about the photos, written by David help you understand the changing landscape and location of the prairie icons. A map of North Dakota and its counties is included in the back so you can easily locate David’s landmarks.
Former North Dakota Lieutenant Governor, Rosemarie Myrdal, writes in the Foreword: “David has photographed the empty churches and farm houses, barns and elevators. He has captured the beauty of the prairie and its nostalgic symbols for us to enjoy. This is a special kind of preservation. We can be grateful for the beauty on these pages and perhaps we will be inspired to drive country roads collecting our own visions of the ever changing North Dakota prairie. Thank you, David, for helping us to see more clearly.”
