Harney-Peak-Revealed

Harney Peak Revealed: A Natural, Historical and Cultural Gem in South Dakota’s Black Hills

10:37 AM  Dec 9th, 2013
by Audrey Starr

A book by Brad Saum ’88

A finalist in the 2013 Next Generation Indie Book Awards’ regional nonfiction category, Saum’s book delves into the history of Harney Peak, the highest point in the Black Hills of western South Dakota. It features a wide collection of unearthed artifacts, like an 1899 newspaper ad offering burro rides. A former park ranger, Saum promises the 7-mile hike to Harney Peak is worth it. “You can imagine Mount Rushmore sculptor Gutzon Borglum standing on the peak, peering across the pine trees and spotting a rock outcropping a few miles away, declaring it the site of a grand mountain carving.”
