22.7 cm. green printed wrappers. 84 pp., frontispiece, plates, portraits, double-page map of Ramsey Co., '80. Reprinted from North Dakota History, Vol. XVI, Nos. 1, 2, and 3 (January (5-29), April (101-130), and July (165-191), 1949). Graham’s Island is an island in Devil's Lake, a lake just outside the city of Devils Lake, North Dakota. Burdick mentions that he was born in 1879 on a farm near Owatonna, Minnesota. In 1882 the family migrated farther west to Dakota Territory. Two years later the Burdicks settled in the Devil’s Lake area which is the scene of much of the narrative, though some memories of his Minnesota backgrounds are included. This story is an excellent illustration of westward migration. Light tanning to edges of wrappers else very good.
