Abstract

Many Americans who came of age during the Cold War might recall participating in preparedness drills at school. The image of schoolchildren “ducking and covering” under their desks illustrates American fears during the atomic age. But apparently, the people sheltering under a desk or in a backyard bunker were not living on the Northern Plains. In Cold War in a Cold Land, David W. Mills argues that residents of North Dakota, South Dakota, and Montana did not live with the same anxieties as people in other regions of the country, believing either that an attack would never come, or, if it did, would not affect their area.
