Well, the day has come for the task of final proofing the interviews from Women Behind the Plow. The exhibit has been a huge success and will be a featured display the North Dakota Heritage Center from May 1 through July 30. What an honor.
We are sure hoping that our books will be printed and back from the bindery so it can be offered up for sale during those months so visitors may read the full stories of these women behind the plow.
Now is an opportunity for you to purchase the book before it is printed at a reduced price. If we do not receive enough pre-sale orders, there will only be 1,000 copies printed. The book is a companion piece to Ewiger Saatz (there are only a few copies of this book remaining for sale) – a 12×12, 120 page full color book with hundreds of photos depicting farm life. The interviews are narratives of life on the farm, the real pioneer women of an area settled by Germans from Russia.
The success of this project will provide support for other projects preserving the German Russian culture. The Tri-County Tourism Alliance would like to include Germans from Russia statewide, regional and nationally in future projects, but as a small group of volunteers, we really need help getting the word out and, of course, your book orders.
If you have questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 701-527-5169.
THANK YOU for helping us with our important work. Your purchase is a donation to the Alliance. This book is indexed to find names and places you will surely recognize.
