On the Cover

Montana’s Rocky Mountain Front, historically referred to as the East Front Range, rises abruptly out of the northern plains and forms the eastern edge of the Continental Divide. This photograph of Old Man of the Hills was taken by East Glacier photographer Tony Bynum, a member of Oregon’s Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde and an international photojournalist known for his stunning landscape, wildlife, and outdoor lifestyle photography. Bynum holds a Master of Science in Resource Management and is currently president of the board of directors of the Professional Outdoor Media Association. Artist James G. Todd Jr. created the wood engraving of Ivan Doig on the back cover (1988, woodcut, 3" x 4") as part of a series of etchings featuring famous Montana authors, including Richard Hugo, Norman Maclean, James Welch, and C. M. Russell. A member of several wood engravers’ and printmakers’ guilds, Todd is Professor Emeritus of Humanities and Art at the University of Montana in Missoula.
