I'm an interpretive historian at the Montana Historical Society and host of the show "History on the Go" on Cherry Creek Radio. In my spare time, I've made a hobby out of investigating the history behind Montana's ghosts and haunted places. My writing includes seven books and numerous magazine articles that tell the most funny, bizzare, and interesting stories from my research into Montana history.
This detailed memoir recalls a young pioneer’s journey from the Great Plains to childhood on the Western frontiers to life on the Flathead Indian Reservation as wife of the Indian agent. A forbidden sled ride, the creaking of the hangman’s rope, her father giving the last of their water to his dying mule; Ronan recounts her experiences with vivid clarity and warmth.
The pages of Montana Moments overflow with enjoyable historical vignettes that cover nearly everything important that has happened in Montana’s history. Newcomers will find an excellent introduction to what makes Montana tick, while Baumler’s careful research and entertaining writing style will delight old-timers.
