A Missoula Review

March 26, 2013

Missoula columnist Ednor Therriault (aka badass honky-tonker Bob Wire) has a thoughtful new review out of Opportunity, Montana, which went on sale today. Here’s an excerpt:

Opportunity, Montana is an important book—a clear-eyed examination of a picturesque, stridently environmentally-correct Montana city that flexed its political muscle to remediate the toxic nightmare at its doorstep, and accepted a back-room deal to have all that waste hauled back upstream and dumped on an area that has already been dumped on.

Read the whole thing — any anything else by the always-entertaining Ednor, for that matter — here.

      Hi Deborah. Hard to say for sure, but there’s probably not anything in the book that would be useful in an ancestry search. I don’t know where you live, but since the book came out in 2013, it’s probably unlikely that most bookstores outside of Montana would have a copy on the shelves today. Any bookstore could certainly order a copy for you, though. I wouldn’t expect any difficulty finding a copy that way, but if you do have any trouble, I’d also be pleased to sell you a copy direct, since I still have several boxes of the book. Thanks for the comment.
