"Owing to the great abundance of coal, both anthracite and bituminous, in the United States, no state need suffer for the lack of it, but to those states like North Dakota, situated in the great plains region and at great distances from such coal supplies, the price of these coals makes them almost luxuries. In the last few years however, the development of the lignite coal within the state of North Dakota has shown an abundance of fuel for many years to come, which, though at one time considered "A poor excuse for poor wood," now competes successfully with any coal from outside the state" – p.
