a140t.jpgDESCRIPTION: New condition, unstated FIRST EDITION paperback. On the Road Again: Montana's Changing Landscape by William Wyckoff, University of Washington Press, c. 2006. Wyckoff explores Montana's changing physical and cultural landscape by pairing photographs taken by state highway engineers in the 1920s and 1930s with photographs taken at the same sites today. The older photographs, preserved in the archives of the Montana Historical Society, were intended to document the expenditure of federal highway funds. Because it is nearly impossible to photograph a road without also photographing the landscape through which that road passes, these images contain a wealth of information about the state's environment during the early decades of the twentieth century. To highlight landscape changes - and continuities - over more than eighty years, Wyckoff chose fifty-eight documented locations and traveled to each to photograph the exact same view. The pairs of old and new photos and accompanying interpretive essays presented here tell a vivid story of physical, cultural, and economic change.

a163t.jpgDESCRIPTION: Birthplace of Montana: A History of Fort Benton by John G. Lepley, c. 1999, stated FIRST PRINTING, December 1999. From its establishment in 1846 until the turn-of-the-century, Fort Benton's primacy in the history of the northern plains is unequaled. Called the "Birthplace of Montana," Fort Benton is the oldest continuously occupied white settlement in Montana. The rich and famous, scoundrels and killers, merchants and gamblers rubbed elbows on Front Street and the levee as they arrived and embarked aboard mackinaws, keelboats and steamboats. Three-fourths of all freight that came into the region was unloaded on Fort Benton's levee and transported to all points of the compass. Until the coming of the railroad, Fort Benton was the "Chicago of the Plains." In 1965 Fort Benton was designated a National Historic Landmark; the Upper Missouri became part of the National Wild and Scenic River System in 1975. The significant role they played in settlement of the American and Canadian West accorded them national and international importance in the history of both nations.

a166t.jpgDESCRIPTION: Silence & Solitude: Yellowstone's Winter Wilderness by Tom Murphy, c. 2002, Riverben publ., second printing. Powerful, brutal, beautiful, and at times, enchanting, winter in Yellowstone National Park is a world unlike any other. It is a season both abstract and profound, where super-heated water erupts into arctic air, where wildlife pushes snow in a constant struggle to survive, and where silence and solitude dominate the park's deep wilderness. Photographer Tom Murphy has experienced Yellowstone's winter wilderness as few others have, skiing far into the backcountry with heavy camera gear, an uncanny ability to weather cold and snow, and an artist's eye for the sublime. His photographs reveal a majestic land where the air is clean and clear and where a wolf's throaty howl carries for miles on a still day.

a247t.jpgDESCRIPTION: 1) The Lewis and Clark Companion: An encyclopedic guide to the voyage of discovery by Stephenie Ambrose Tubbs, c. 2003, An Owl book, Henry Hold and Co. Stated FIRST EDITION 2003. 2) Or Perish in the Attempt: Wilderness medicine in the Lewis & Clark Expedition by David J. Peck, D.O, Farcountry Press, c. 2002. Ingeniously combines the remarkable adventures of Lewis and Clark with an examination of the health problems their expedition faced. Formidable problems indeed, but the author patiently, expertly-and humorously-guides us through the medical travels of the famous journey, juxtaposing treatment then against remedy now. The result is a fascinating book that sheds new light not only on Lewis and Clark and the men and one remarkable woman (and her infant) who accompanied them along an eight-thousand-mile wilderness path but also on the practice of medicine in their time and place.
