A covered wagon on a dim road, the promise of a long journey, and the wonder of what lay ahead filled Mary Sheehan Ronan’s earliest memories. By the time she reached her twenties, she was a well-seasoned pioneer. Ronan tells her story in this entertaining memoir. The exhilaration of a forbidden sled ride, the creaking of the hangman's rope, her father giving the last of their water to his dying mule—these things Ronan descibes with vivid clarity. Girl from the Gulches offers a unique perspective that is a joy to read.

Spirit Tailings: Ghost Tales from Virginia City, Butte and Helena

Montana is alive with things that go bump in the Big Sky night. A World War II serviceman who lingers in a Billings business, a dearly departed priest who still hitchhikes around Helena, and a Hamilton socialite who adorns her mansion with the scent of roses—these are a few of the creepy tales from across the state collected in Beyond Spirit Tailings. It offers more ghostly encounters from Montana's heritage places, but branches out to explore such mysteries as the monster said to lurk in the deep waters of Flathead Lake, the power of an ancient object revered by native peoples, and a possible explanation for the death of Thomas Francis Meagher. These eerie and mysterious tales will leave you looking over your shoulder, sleeping with the lights on, and always craving more.

Montana Place Names: From Alzada to Zortman

The penitentiary at Deer Lodge, established in 1870, was Montana Territory's first federal facility. These buildings bear the marks of a violent history: bazooka scars mar the tower where prisoners holed up during the infamous riot of 1959 and an inmate's delicate stenciling oddly adorns the room where the two riot masterminds died. Dark Spaces tells the physical and human tale of the troubled institution whose idyllic setting contrasts so violently with the history it holds. J. M. Cooper's detailed photographs of the prison's interiors and exteriors combine with historic images to illustrate the stories of the people who lived—and sometimes died—within its walls.
