My grandmother and grandfather’s wedding picture, 1920. Her name was Anna, which my middle name came from and which we gave our younger daughter. His name was Dominic, and he died when I was 6. Both of them are on the manifests of ships that arrived at Ellis Island.
The rugged beauty of the Badlands National Park draws visitors from around the world. These striking geologic deposits contain one of the world’s richest fossil beds. Ancient mammals such as the rhino, horse, and saber-toothed cat once roamed here. The park’s 244,000 acres protect an expanse of mixed-grass prairie where bison, bighorn sheep, prairie dogs, and black-footed ferrets live today.
