BOOK EXCERPT: "Controlled Recklessness: Ed Lemmon and the Open Range"

An excerpt from Nathan Sanderson’s book Controlled Recklessness: Ed Lemmon and the Open Range, published in 2015 by the South Dakota Historical Society Press, follows Lemmon from a crippling range accident in South Dakota to a stay at his father’s Nebraska farm as he contemplated whether to continue the cattleman’s life. Lemmon went on to help found several towns west of the Missouri River, including the South Dakota community that bears his name. Sanderson is a policy advisor to Governor Dennis Daugaard.
