Reading & Signing
A BRUSH WITH A WILD THING OR TWO IN MONTANA
Wednesday, March 28@ 7:00pm
In this exciting reading & signing, acclaimed author, Dale Burk, will be reading from his new memoir, "A Brush With a Wild Thing or Two in Montana" which looks back on a life spent in the wilds of Montana.
Burk writes about many of his encounters or “brushes” with wild things – wildlife, the landscape, trout, wild land and wild rivers and sometimes wild people, plus, literally, life and death – and how they all shaped his work as a writer.
It also include his “brushes” with potentially dangerous things like wolverines, grizzly bears, lightning and mountain blizzards, colorful back country packers and camp cooks, hunters and fishermen like the famed Fran Johnson of Butte, a special chapter involving Dale’s beloved Big Hole River, and the efforts by many people, like the late Loren Kreck of Columbia Falls, to formally establish the Great Bear Wilderness in northwestern Montana. He also writes of his involvement in the early days of the effort to establish the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and, in the book’s final chapter, explores his spiritual growth out of experiences in the Montana wilderness.
