Leah moved to North Dakota when she was 12 years old and has traveled from the Red River Valley to the badlands and many places in between. She loves small-town life and currently enjoys living on a small farm in the ND prairie. She's always had a passion for writing and has participated in novel writing challenges such as NaNoWriMo multiple times. Her favorite part about this job is recognizing small businesses that deserve a boost and seeing the positive affect her articles can have on their traffic, especially in rural areas that might have otherwise gone overlooked.
North Dakota’s history is a fascinating one. As a relatively younger state, a lot of the older history happened while it was still part of the Dakota Territory. From the days of the Native Americans to the European pioneers and later settlers, there are many stories from across the prairie. There were a handful of battles across the state, and one, in particular, has gone down in the record books as one of the bloodiest, most brutal battles ever – and you can visit where it happened.
