by

The Undying West: A Chronicle of Montana'a Camas Prairie Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In The Undying West, Carlene Cross creates a memorable blend of personal and regional history. The voices in her stories include those of her father and his "sod-busting" friends; the Salish, Kootenai, Nez Perce, and Iroquois Indians; the fossil remains of Montana's prehistory; and even the wind, the soil, and the prairie grasses. Cross is a storyteller in the tradition of such notable Western writers as William Kittredge, Rick Bass, and Ivan Doig. And like them, she offers a personal testament to the enduring qualities of the West Whether describing the glacial birth of Lake Missoula or land preservation issues, Cross's observations are those of one seasoned by this unique landscape and its peoples.

Synopsis:

The author combines the stories of her youth with historical fact to create rich and diverse narratives, telling the story of the people who have shaped the land.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [209]-219) and index.

About the Author
