"The Buffalo King"

Feb 7, 2013

Justin Koehler's new film, "The Buffalo King," is a documentary of James "Scotty" Philip, one of South Dakota's most influential figures.  Often described as the "man who saved the buffalo," Philip was also a study in turn-of-the-century United States History.  Koehler is a Denver-based filmmaker who grew up in Midland, South Dakota.  Private screenings of "The Buffalo King" will take place this weekend in Pierre and Philip.

"North of Twelfth Street: The Changing Face of Sioux Falls Neighborhoods," is a new book by author, photographer and former state senator Tom Dempster.  The book focuses on three historic districts, as well as a collection of other north Sioux Falls sites that contain some of the city's best-known and most-revered buildings.  Dempster frames these neighborhoods with the lens of his camera, providing a glimpse into Sioux Falls, its iconic edifices and the people who live there.  For more information visit www.sdshspress.com.
