By L.D. Bergsgaard
Mandan, North Dakota, is seen through the eyes of a young boy a half-century ago in L.D. Bergsgaard's memoir of midwestern life in the 1950s.
Where the Best Began: Stories of a Boy on the American Prairie includes dozens of short sketches on topics including school mishaps, rowdy adventures with neighborhood friends and family holiday rituals, along with remembrances of poverty, loss and grief.
Bergsgaard is a retired special agent who spent 30 years in law enforcement.
