Splendid Country Roads, Refuge Co., South Dakota depicts the results of the Untied States stealing Indian land and the wholesale slaughter of indigenous populations. All of this was occurring during government sanctioned exploration of and intrusion into the countryside. Many found postcards were used to digitally create Splendid Country Roads. In this card, I am also acknowledging the practice of Mid-West farmers to create scaled-down replicas in their fields of iconic American buildings, bridges and other famous structures and how these structures reflect both our pride and our failure.
