BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — An oral history of Four Bears Bridges has been named to the list of Notable Government Documents for 2011.
The "Crossing the Water" DVD set produced by the North Dakota Department of Transportation uses historic photographs and video footage to illustrate the past of the three bridges.
The Bismarck Tribune reports that the North Dakota Library Association nominated the work at its annual conference in 2011. The program recognizes North Dakota state agency documents of exceptional quality and usefulness.
All three of the association's 2011 submissions were selected by the national committee. North Dakota Parks and Recreation's "North Dakota Trail Guide" and the North Dakota Council of the Arts' "Sundogs and Sunflowers: Folklore and Folk Art of the Northern Great Plains" also received honors.
