The Tourist Guide to the Bakken: New Title and Introduction

It looks good for me and Bret Weber to submit the almost complete manuscript of our Tourist Guide to the Bakken Oil Patch. We’ve had a few cool developments over the last week.

First, we have a new title. Since the book formerly known as The Tourist Guide will appear in the Heritage Guide Series, it seemed a bit redundant to use the word guide twice on the cover of the book. So we changed its name the simpler: The Bakken. To reinforce the book’s academic credentials, the publisher will let us have the requisite subtitle: An Archaeology of an Industrial Landscape.

Below is the almost-final draft of the introductory material. There are just a few things left to sort out over the next 24 hours and the completed manuscript should be on its way by Tuesday evening.


BOO! We had to take down the introduction at the request of our publisher!
