Published On: June 21, 2019

The new book North Dakotans Never Give Up: A Memoir, by Larry Aasen, has been donated to the Institute for Regional Studies Archives book collection by the author.  The following book description comes from Google Books:

 “While Larry Aasen was growing up on a farm in North Dakota, he and the people of his state lived through a Great Depression, crop failures, floods, grasshopper infestations, a World War, snowstorms, bank failures, crop diseases, and severe weather extremes. If they were to survive, they couldn't give up. So Larry has written a book - part history, part memoir - that pays tribute to some North Dakotans whose determination made them successful in many fields, including farming, education, sports, war, politics, business, entertainment and journalism North Dakotans Never Give Up is also a memoir, because it gives a picture of life and times in North Dakota in the 1930s and 1940s.”
