Reviews
“Superior history of the state of Montana, by an indigenous editor who understands ecology as well as gun-play and who is tearing mad about what a mistaken land policy, monopoly practices, dust storms, and two wars have done to his native earth. Critical, well informed, and brightly written.”—New Yorker.

“The best single book I know on the subject. Scholarly, yet eminently readable, entertaining all the way.”—Weekly Book Review.
