Description

The remote Big Hole watershed is typical of a landscape once common in the American Rocky Mountain West. Before the arrival of white culture, Indians moved freely under the big sky, gathered camas roots from the prairie, hunted elk along the wooded slopes, and quested after visions among the rugged snowcapped peaks. Fur trappers, miners, loggers, and homesteaders all left their mark upon the land. A new ranching culture emerged as settlers learned to live with the land and build sustainable communities. Today recreational visitors follow Lewis and Clark's footsteps, explore mountain trails, and fish the swift cold waters. Wide-open spaces and abundant fish and wildlife still dominate the landscape.This is the fascinating story of the Big Hole and the people who have made it their home, with gorgeous color photographs by some of the West's preeminent photographers, including Andy Anderson, Val Atkinson, Dave Decker, Matt Fisher, Brian O'Keefe, and Neal and Linda Rogers. "Montana's Last Best River" is perfect for fly fishers, history buffs, and lovers of fine Western photography.show more
