Montana - Still the last best place?

January 27, 2018View for printing

Thirty years ago, celebrating Montana's centennial, Bill Kittredge and I presented the world with a book called "The Last Best Place, A Montana Anthology."

We had worked for years with friends and editors, compiling journals, essays, stories, poems and oral tradition narratives dating back to Indian myths and Lewis and Clark. It included chronicles written by cowboys and settlers, diaries by Butte miners and work from those we believed were the best contemporary writers in the state. Much to our surprise, the book became a bestseller, not only in Montana, but all over the country and even abroad.
