"When you listen to Dakota Datebook on Prairie Public, you are sometimes so taken with the audio performance that you forget how well these short explorations of North Dakota life are written." — Clay S. Jenkinson, Creator and Host of The Thomas Jefferson Hour
"Elaborating upon events and developments from prehistoric times through the twentieth century, these stories introduce us to characters — unknown, famous, and infamous — who are too prone to disappear within the broad strokes of the state's history. To paraphrase an old advertising slogan, 'Betcha can't read just one!'" — Professor Bethany Andreasen, Minot State University
