Absaroka written up in NY Times

The New York Times writes extensively about Absaroka, the state that would have included what is now eastern Wyoming and western South Dakota. Proponents even held a "Miss Absaroka" pageant in 1939... but no followup contest in 1940. So apparently the 1939 winner is still wearing her tiara.

  1. I lived in both Wyoming and South Dakota, my dad was born in South Dakota and I never heard of Absaroka when I was growing up. I reckon this one really is 'lost'
