  • The lives of the Montanans portrayed in these poems are transformed by tremendous loss and hardship. Their spiritual survival of the loss of land, several wars, and the Great Depression is made possible by faith, laughter, love, resilience, and redemption. These well-researched Montana stories, told in poems and accompanied by archival photographs, span more than a century.
