Riassunto: Steeples stand out here on the prairies and plains of North Dakota. They are eclipsed by few other structures in the countryside, creating a cultural landscape like no other. Testaments to faith and community, the prairie churches of North Dakota captured the heart of the nation.
Through the Grassroots Grant Program, Preservation North Dakota -- a statewide nonprofit dedicated to preserving and celebrating the architecture, historic places, and communities in the varied landscapes of our prairie state -- has to date awarded nearly $150,000 in grants, beginning with the twenty-six prairie churches preservation projects across the state that are featured in this book. Preservation North Dakota and its partners have made a huge investment in the people and places that make North Dakota unique. Prairie Churches, with its stunning photos and success stories, is a commemoration of all that has been accomplished over the past decade.

L'autore: Lauren Hardmeyer Donovan, a native of Mott, lives in Hazen and attends English Lutheran Church (established in 1907), a simple brick-faced structure on the town's Main Street. Donovan is a career journalist and currently works from a Hazen bureau for the Bismarck Tribune as a regional reporter, covering people, community, energy, and agriculture. She and her husband Patrick Donovan have three grown children and two granddaughters. Her love of history and small town North Dakota are links to her interest in the work of Preservation North Dakota, which she joined in 2008 and now serves as vice president.

John Toso is an Oregon-based photographer who specializes in historic photographic documentation. For him, North Dakota is a cornucopia of his favorite subject matter--churches, grain elevators, schools, barns, cemeteries, and sunflowers. He once mentioned to a woman his surprise and appreciation that most churches are unlocked. She replied, ''Well, this IS North Dakota.''
Thomas D. Isern, a long-time officer of PND, and now a member of its advisory board, participated in several of the prairie church preservation efforts chronicled in this book. He is Professor of History & University Distinguished Professor at North Dakota State University and founder of its Center for Heritage Renewal, which performs research and public service in the areas of historic preservation and heritage tourism. Professor Isern is the author of Plains Folk, the weekly radio feature heard on Prairie Public.
