Mind-Boggling Tales from Big Sky Country
 
Meriwether Lewis hauled the metal frame of his favorite boat all the way from St. Louis to the Great Falls of the Missouri, then discovered it wouldn't float. Is it buried in a riverbank somewhere close to one of Montanas largest cities?
 
Thomas Meagher, a Civil War general and former  territorial governor, disappeared in muddy waters outside of Fort Benton. Did he go for a boozy, late-night swim or was he murdered?
 
And deep in the cold, dark recesses of Flathead Lake, a mysterious monster may be lurking . . . or maybe “Flessie” is only a figment of some overactive imaginations.
 
From mummified remains of the Little People to ghost sightings in the old territorial prison at Deer Lodge, author Ed Lawrence makes history fun, pulling the curtain back on some of the Wests most fascinating and compelling stories.

Synopsis:

From a haunted prison in Red Lodge to persistent rumors of bigfoot, from whispered descriptions of the "tommyknockers" who help miners in trouble to a famous union organizer found lynched from a bridge in Butte, this selection of fourteen stories from Montana's past explores some of the Treasure State's most compelling mysteries and debunks some of its most famous myths.
