No blog readers from Montana? They don't know what they are missing. Young Men and Fire and Montana 48 are both wonderful books.

Not too familiar with this group of books and authors. But hmmm, Legends of the Fall. That was a great movie.

annieb - I'm excited to read A River Runs Through it this year before my September road trip to Glacier National Park!

Sandy - Seriously, but it's so sad!

My brother could probably help flesh out this list. I might go so far as to put Sarah Vowell, who writes a bit about her experience living in Montana.

Jenners - If he has any other books let me know! This one is a bit spare.
