In den abgeschiedenen Tälern und nahezu undurchdringlichen Bergwäldern im Nordwesten von Montana ist der Sozialarbeiter Pete Snow unterwegs, um Kindern zu helfen. Da gibt es drogensüchtige Mütter, gewalttätige Väter, Waffen- und Bibelnarren, aber vor allem die ganz normale Armut. Als eines Tages Benjamin, ein halb wilder, vernachlässigter Junge, in seiner Stadt auftaucht, lernt er dessen Vater Jeremiah Pearl kennen, einen Anarchisten und Weltverschwörer, der im Wald lebt und sich gegen die Endzeit wappnet ... Pete Snow ist Sozialarbeiter in der kleinen Stadt Tenmile im Nordwesten von Montana, und es gibt viel zu tun in den Dörfern und abgelegenen Farmen mitten in der Wildnis. Das Leben vieler Leute ist geprägt von Armut, Gewalt, Alkohol und Drogen, und oft steht Pete zwischen seinen Klienten und der Polizei. Über sein eigenes Leben verliert Pete zusehends die Kontrolle, vor allem als seine halbwüchsige Tochter Rachel davonläuft und er immer wieder vergeblich nach ihr sucht. Eines Tages trifft Pete in Tenmile auf Benjamin Pearl, einen unterernährten elfjährigen Jungen, der offenbar in der Wildnis lebt, und als er dessen Vater kennenlernt, stößt er fast an seine Grenzen, als Sozialarbeiter wie als Mensch. Denn Jeremiah Pearl ist ein paranoider Anarchist, der außerhalb des Gesetzes lebt. Nach und nach gewinnt Pete Jeremiahs Vertrauen, und eine seltsame Annäherung findet zwischen den beiden so unterschiedlichen Vätern statt. Bis plötzlich Polizei und FBI in Aktion treten, die Jeremiah Pearl schon länger im Visier haben ... Ein großer, packender amerikanischer Roman, der eine ganz eigene Stimme hat und der wie Richard Ford, Jonathan Franzen oder Cormac McCarthy wichtige Themen berührt, die diese komplexe und widersprüchliche Nation ausmachen.

Montana: A History of Two Centuries first appeared in 1976 and immediately became the standard work in its field. In this thoroughgoing revision, William L. Lang has joined Michael P. Malone and Richard B. Roeder in carrying forward the narrative to the 1990s. Fully twenty percent of the text is new or revised, incorporating the results of new research and new interpretations dealing with pre-history, Native American studies, ethnic history, women's studies, oral history, and recent political history. In addition, the bibliography has been updated and greatly expanded, new maps have been drawn, and new photographs have been selected.

This book is a second volume, containing information on 100 additional lakes in Flathead, Lake, Lincoln, Missoula and Sanders counties of northwest Montana. They range from lowland lakes to alpine lakes. Many can be driven to, while many others require a hike. Most fishing guides offer very limited information on a large number of lakes, most of which their authors have never even been near. This book provides detailed information on the lake and surrounding area, as well as directions and fishing tips. All lakes included in this book have been personally visited, photographed, and in most cases fished by the author. The emphasis is on the fisherman's perspective, but trail and camping information is equally applicable to those who only wish to hike and camp. This volume covers many lakes in the Yaak area, as well as the Jewel Basin and additional waters in the Ten Lakes area near Eureka. Many lakes are found in the Lolo, Flathead, Kootenai and Kaniksu National Forests. Hikes into lakes in the Cabinet Mountains Wilderness and Mission Mountains Wilderness are also included. Photographic opportunities, for both scenery and wildlife, in the areas covered by this book are limitless. While researching this volume, bear (black and grizzly), cougar, wolves, mountain goats, moose, elk, countless deer, and even porcupine were encountered. The book is separated into chapters for each lake. A photograph of the lake is included at the beginning of each chapter. The author is a ten-time Washington State record holder, with certified weight records for five different species of fish. Catch data for several hundred lakes, dating back to 1981, has been provided to Washington State fish biologists. Data dating back to 1994 has also been provided to the State of Montana. Born and raised in northwest Washington and part of a very outdoor oriented family, the author has spent his entire life exploring new places and looking for new waters to fish. So far the search for fishing opportunities has ranged across the states of Washington, Idaho and Montana.

First published in 1939, this nostalgic guide includes chapters on Montana's natural setting, history, economy, and cultural life as of half a century ago, plus separate entries for Billings, Butte, Great Falls, Helena, and Missoula--which at the time boasted four hotels and five-cent bus fares. There then follow, in the WPA Guide tradition, 18 tours that crisscross the state and point out not only natural splendors along the way but also such noteworthy historic sites as Custer Battlefield, the Blackfeet Indian Reservation, Boothill Cemetery in Virginia City, and the site of the "holing-up" shanty of Calamity Jane. Fourteen additional tours--four for roads, ten for trails--guide readers through Glacier National Park.

Perhaps once in a generation it is possible for a historian to reinterpret the long sweep of an area and a period in our history. K. Ross Toole has chosen Montana for this purpose, and the brilliant success of his achievement must be apparent to all who read these pages. He has consciously avoided a systematic presentation of the history of this "uncommon land," Instead, he has chosen to put the great and many of the smaller but significant episodes of a century and a half into new perspective. The record, in its colorful and romantic aspects, stretches from the days of Lewis and Clark; and in its more recent aspects, from the subjugation of the Indian to the predominance of big mining and timber enterprises. The resulting portrait is sharply drawn by a man who knows not only how to interpret the remote and recent past but how to write with great effect. Montana is best remembered by most Americans as the state in which the Indian played his last dramatic role with the annihilation of General George Armstrong Custer. But it was also the area in which the fur trade had its roots; where the sheepherders and the cattlemen vied with each other for the right to graze the land; where the "honyockers" tried-and often failed to master the land and the seasons; where copper interests have played a powerful role in politics and in the lives of the people; and where, only recently, the oil industry has followed the boom-and-bust cycle so well known in the state. This story of Montana points up particularly the position which is and has been occupied by the state in relation to the nation as a whole.
