It is the story about Minot, my hometown, a city located in the North Central part of the state. The story is more than just a tale about the birth of the 39th state and the growth of a city- it is the story of the many people who have throughout the years enabled their hometown to become the Magic City. Although history credits its origin to the railroad and the coming of the Iron Horse, it is the people, her children if you will, who give her beauty, character and life itself--for all cities and towns, large or small, are of themselves but a mirror image of their children.The story begins long ago, at a time when the area was inhabited by Native Americans, namely the Arikara, Hidatsa, and Mandan Indians. Each chapter covers a different piece of the puzzle in the city’s history from birth to the modern era.
