Montana Grit
Ten Unsung Heroes Who Dared to Make a Difference

by Marga Lincoln

published by Farcountry Press

  • Ten Montanans Who Championed What Was Right Against Powerful Odds.

    Montana Grit examines the life of ten Montanans who each in their own way fought for justice, not only for themselves but for the good of all. Meet Charles Crum and George Bourquin, judges who defended the constitutional right of free speech during World War I. And Hazel Hunkins, a brilliant chemist from Billings who picketed the White House to win the right for women to vote. Here too are Hum Fay, a Butte businessman facing a racist boycott; Helena's Octavia Bridgwater, a pioneering Black nurse; and Elouise Cobell, who demanded, simply, that the U.S. government pay the billions due to tribal landowners. These unsung heroes (and four more) stood against fear and injustice, and their stories remain inspirational today.
