How an unlikely crew with improvised equipment raised a 167-foot LANDMARK SHRINE far out on the Yankton Sioux Reservation in 1942.

Abstract:
Caught between the juggernaut of World War II and the labor grab of a Federal Dam rising on nearby Missouri River, an isolated band of workmen build a 167-foot-high stone shrine on the Yankton Sioux Reservation in South Dakota. True story of how a self-educated engineer with improvised equipment and an unconventional crew, raises an acclaimed landmark, 10 miles from a railroad. Project stands as a monument to the old chiefs’ persistent plan for a school and Blackrobe of their own. Seen through old letters, interviews, and the author’s keen memory of the builder, her Dad. [Her fourth book.]
