This spiral-bound booklet is a reprint of History of Roberts, South Dakota, written by the Roberts County Centennial Committee, plus excerpts from South Dakota, a Guide to the State, a 1938 WPA project. The tri-color front cover is printed on 80# card stock and has been protected with a vinyl sheet. The text is printed on 60# opaque paper. Although the booklet count is 75 pages, it includes nearly double that number from the original source materials, as we were able to fit two pages of source material on each of the 11" x 8.5" sheet in the new booklet.
