"Henry's Adventure At The Franklin Hotel"


On June 4, 1903, the Franklin Hotel opened to the public with an elaborate reception and ball.  But what happened in the days leading up to the event?  "Henry's Adventure at the Franklin Hotel" brings to life the time, manners, and cultural roles of everyday life in the gold boomtown of Deadwood.  The book by authors Joanna Jones and Nancy Cartwright is on the 2013-14 South Dakota Prairie Pasque book list from the South Dakota Librarians.
