“The pages of Montana Moments overflow with enjoyable historical vignettes that cover nearly everything important that’s happened in Montana’s history.

Forget dreary dates and boring facts. Montana Moments distills the most funny, bizarre, and interesting stories from Montana’s history into pure entertainment. Meet the colorful cast of the famous and not-so-famous desperadoes, vigilantes, madams, and darned good men and women (and a few critters) who made the state’s history. You’ll get a laugh from the transient vaudevillian who wrote the state song. Captain James C. Kerr’s tale of the Flathead Lake monster might make you shiver. No matter your reaction, you’ll have fun exploring Montana—so enjoy a little history as you go.
