Vol. 1: Neighbors Share the Tragedy 

Jan Klein and Joyce Kloncz, members of the Family and Friends of Dakota Victims Committee, have published a 75-page spiral-bound booklet which contains information on the causes of the Dakota Uprising, a map and names of Beaver Creek and Birch Coulie settlers, and 32 heart-rending stories about Renville County uprising victims. Renville County Pioneers and Renville Rangers are also covered in the booklet, along with today’s descendants’ relationships in Birch Coulie and Beaver Falls Township, plus the names of donors supporting the Family and Friends Committee.
