Fifty-Six Counties: A Montana Journey by Russell Rowland
Rowland spent over a year studying and traveling around Montana. Along the way, he considered our state's essential character, where we came from, and, most of all, what we might be in the process of becoming. Fifty-Six Counties: A Montana Journey is astounding in beauty and vitality, interwoven with great wisdoms. Everything about Montana is big: its proverbial sky, its mountains, its wide open spaces. And yet, Russell Rowland has managed to capture all that grand landscape–and the people who inhabit it–into the intimacy of a single book.
Copper Sky by Milana Marsenich
Set in the Copper Camp of Butte, Montana in 1917, Copper Sky tells the story of two women with opposite lives. Kaly Shane, mired in prostitution, struggles to find a safe home for her unborn child, while Marika Lailich, a Slavic immigrant, dodges a pre-arranged marriage to become a doctor. As their paths cross, and they become unlikely friends, neither knows the family secret that ties them together. The feminine spirit of the West comes alive in early twentieth century Montana.
