Philip S. Hall

Philip S. Hall is a psychologist who worked with children with debilitating learning and behavior problems for 40 years. A fourth-generation South Dakotan, he also spent many hours exploring the White River Badlands, mostly on horseback, and interviewing “old-timers” living there. These experiences gave rise to three books about the area’s history: To Have This Land, Reflections of the Badlands, and, with Mary Solon Lewis, From Wounded Knee to the Gallows.
