DEL BONITA (of the pretty) or as the Indians call it
Kai Kim-i-kay, Opening through the Ridge.
Del Bonita is not known for mayors, aldermen, banks, cinemas or malls. It is known for people with courage who left lands rich in culture, friendliness, and familiar surroundings, to brave hardships of loneliness, and miles and miles of nothing but wav- ing stretches of bunch grass. Now their descendants enjoy the peace, the tilled fields, the value of work, the beauty of the rolling hills, and all that makes life easier in this year 1980.
Present day Del Bonita has a store and post office, bulk gas station, a school where children are taught through grade nine, a community hall, the Latter Day Saints Church, a recreation park, five homes, and the Municipal District shop.
This small spot is the place that many people call home. It is a place you want to come back to, to enjoy the friendliness, companionship, and sports- manship of people willing to help in time of need.
As you read this book, those who compiled it hope you will see the people and understand the love they have for the land of the Milk River watershed.
