Seeing South Dakota’s promise, possibilities

By Katie Hunhoff.
 
Fraser Harrison, a travel writer from England, spent the summer of 2013 in Yankton. An essay on his impressions is featured in the current South Dakota History magazine, published by the State Historical Society. Harrison calls it a love letter to Yankton. But it was not love at first sight. The 2013 visit was not our English friend’s first time in Yankton. He visited several South Dakota towns in 2011 for his book Infinite West: Travels in South Dakota.

Firesteel Creek: From ripples to raging

This June 1953 picture shows the Firesteel Creek looking more like a lake. The original bridge spanning the creek was located in the upper right hand corner of the picture before it was swept down the creek. In places the creek overflowed a half mile wide.

By Jack Bickel.
 
An intense cloudburst inundated much of west river South Dakota with torrents of floodwater early in the afternoon on June 18. In our part of the country, the resulting run-off may be the most water that’s come down the Firesteel Creek since the legendary flood in June of 1953.
