Bigfork, Montana author Mae Schick releases ‘The Lookout Woman’

Lookout Woman

Bigfork author Mae Schick has released her newest book, “The Lookout Woman,” a novel set on a mountain lookout near Glacier National Park.

Lookout towers were the ultimate in social distancing. Now the structures are a nostalgic part of our history. Although most of these iconic 20th century buildings are obsolete, they were once maintained by individuals who accepted isolation, erratic weather patterns, boredom, tedious work, and the unexpected visitor, animal or human. Or, if it became intolerable, they gave up and abandoned their posts.

The U.S. Forest Service manual stated only two acceptable reasons to leave the mountain — a death or the need to see a dentist.
