Clay Jenkinson book added to the book collection

For the Love of North Dakota and Other Essays: Sundays with Clay in the Bismarck Tribune, by Clay S. Jenkinson has been added to the Institute for Regional Studies Archives book collection.  The following overview is taken from the press release for the book:

“Clay S. Jenkinson’s love affair with North Dakota and the Great Plains is the central theme of his life. For the Love of North Dakota is a compilation of essays—many of which began as newspaper columns in the Bismarck Tribune—that explores two themes: the changing face of North Dakota as it makes the transition from an agrarian enclave at the heart of the North American continent to a more globally connected urban and industrial society; and the spirit of place of North Dakota, an isolated, windswept, subarctic grassland that has its own enchantment and astonishing beauty.”
