Clow, a Native American Studies professor, edited "The Sioux in South Dakota History: A Twentieth Century Reader," which was published by the South Dakota State Historical Society Press in 2007. The book is a selection of 13 essays that examine a variety of themes in Sioux history since 1900. The essays were selected from past issues of South Dakota History, the peer-reviewed quarterly journal of the South Dakota State Historical Society.
The Independent Publisher Book Awards, launched in 1996, are designed to bring increased recognition to deserving but often unsung titles published by independent authors and publishers.
