New NDSU Press book "The Prairie Post Office" added to collection

The new North Dakota State University Press book, The Prairie Post Office: Enlarging the Common Life in Rural North Dakota, by K. Amy Phillips, Steven R. Bolduc, Wayne Gudmundson, and Kevin Carvell, has been added to the Institute for Regional Studies Archives book collection.  The following description comes from the NDSU Press website:

“SAVE OUR POST OFFICE! This was the plea when the USPS determined to restructure or close post offices across the US, including 76 locations in North Dakota. In response, authors Amy Phillips and Steven Bolduc set out to explore the contemporary role of post offices in ND. The Prairie Post Office documents an essential institution and includes a history of northern Dakota Territory & ND rural postal services by Kevin Carvell and 100+ color photos by Wayne Gudmundson.”
