Excerpt from A History of Jerauld County, South Dakota: From the Earliest Settlement to January 1st, 1909 In presenting to our readers this history of Jerauld County we are undertaking a rather large task. There is so little of record and so much of legend that it is hard to separate the wheat from the chaff. However, we have carefully sifted the legends as received and have selected what seemed to be accurate. Of the later history, of course, records disclose the facts and that has been less difficult to gather. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
