A field guide to Western Montana: horseback riding, small town saloons, interviews with fishing guides, ranchers, and U.S. Senators; fly-fishing and wilderness adventure.
Inside Wildsam Western Montana you'll find Montana stories and legend from prize-winning writers, past and present: detailed road trip plans and profiles of idyllic towns; interviews with poets and journalists, fishermen and innkeepers; delightful ephemera from the archives, selective recommendations about authentic Western Montana experiences, and a robust guide to fly-fishing tradition and practices.
"Despite its lonesome image, Montana has a warm embrace. Wide-open spaces make connection all the more vital. Montanans love to get together, whether that means hitting a small-town tavern–you’ll find the Pony Bar in these pages, for sure–or thronging the streets of Butte for one of that tough city’s famed shindigs. The tight-knit neighborhoods in Missoula and Bozeman are as much Montana as any high mountain pass or secluded bank of the Yellowstone."
