Dakota literature, based in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, is an on-line book store featuring a large variety of books and specializing in both fiction and non-fiction Western Americana and Modern First Editions. We try to have books available that incorporate the Dakotas and the surrounding Midwestern states, but you will also find many other genres, including some older collectible books. In addition, we have a special section of Signed Editions.

We realize that buying books off the internet and not being able to touch and feel the binding of the book and look at the pages may seem somewhat daunting. To help you feel more comfortable with this process, we use the Independent Online Booksellers Association (IOBA) Book Condition Definitions when describing the condition of our books. These definitions as well as other valuable information can be found at the IOBA Web Site www.ioba.org. We also include pictures of our books which is very helpful in showing the condition of the book and providing you with a picture of signatures on signed editions. Please contact us if you have any questions about the condition of a book or would like more information. We want to assure you that if what you are buying does not meet your expectations, we will refund your money along with any shipping charges back to Sioux Falls as long as the book is returned to us in the same condition that it was shipped. Please see the section on Policies for more information regarding our return policy.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions about our books or services at the link on our Home Page or the telephone number that is posted. Thank you for your interest and enjoy shopping at Dakota Literature.
