Publisher Comments:

Montana Almanac delivers the facts - thousands and thousands of them - on Big Sky Country:

Early prospectors sluicing for gold cursed the sapphires that clogged their equipment.

In 1904 the girls basketball team from Fort Shaw Indian School defeated all challengers at the St. Louis World's Fair and were declared "Champions of the World."

The beaverslide haystacker revolutionized haying when it was invented in the Big Hole Valley a century ago.

Montana Republican Jeannette Rankin was first elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1916, four years before the Twentieth Amendment gave women the right to vote.

In 1995 Wheat Montana Farms & Bakery of Three Forks set a world record for cutting wheat from the field and turning it into a loaf of bread - 8 minutes, 13 seconds.

Completely revised and updated by lifelong Montana resident Andrea Merrill-Maker, Montana Almanac is a mountain of information. With this one book, long-time Montanans and newcomers alike can become steeped in Montana's history and people, natural treasures, sports and outdoor recreation, business and agriculture, arts and culture, and travel spots that any self-respecting Montanan ought not to miss.
