Readers can share in the history and culture of the state and the Northern Plains through the Society's quarterly historical publication, North Dakota History: Journal of the Northern Plains, which features well-illustrated, fascinating articles by historians and writers. The most recent issue features an article about James Cash Penney and his North Dakota stores by David Delbert Kruger and an article on star quilts on the Northern Plains, as a symbol of American Indian identity, by Birgit Hans.
In 2000, a valuable research tool, an index of all articles and reviews that appeared in North Dakota History between 1945 and 1998, was published by the Society. Members of the State Historical Society of North Dakota Foundation receive North Dakota History and Plains Talk as a benefit of membership. Contact the Museum Store for information on current and back issues.
