Beautiful Women of North Dakota

Beautiful Women of North Dakota
started with an idea that came to me some years ago, sparked by my experience as a single dad raising two young girls. Noticing the tremendous emphasis on physical beauty in magazines, television, and even in my own work, I wondered how I could expose my daughters to beauty that wasn’t ephemeral—beauty that would inspire them and pass the test of time.
These women aren’t seeking recognition. They aren’t the women gracing the cover of Vogue or whose stories are featured on Entertainment Tonight. But I firmly believe that these are the women who can truly inspire our daughters not to take the easy road, but instead, like the Navajo said, choose to “Walk in beauty”.

"Billy Black and Chris Linnares set out on a road trip and discovered where beauty truly lies: in the soul."  - Entertainment Tonight
"It's a groundbreaking book that recognizes women from all walks of life who exemplify what true beauty really is."- Mikey L. Hoeven, First Lady of North Dakota
