New NDSU Press book Operation Snowbound added to collection

The new NDSU Press book, Operation Snowbound: Life behind the Blizzards of 1949, by David W. Mills, has been added to the Institute for Regional Studies Archives book collection.

“Readers of Operation Snowbound will find themselves immersed in blinding snow, innovative rescues, and daring aerial operations during the blizzards of 1949. Mills gives readers a 1st-hand look at how cooperation from pilots, farmers, and scientists in the Great Plains & the American West were instrumental in formalizing the federal emergency response system that continues to help Americans face environmental hazards today.”--David D. Vail, U. of Neb. at Kearney.
