(Winner of the Mountains & Plains Regional Book Award for Adult Nonfiction) So much claims Hannah Hinchman's attention in this exquisite illustrated journal: blades of grass springing from beneath snow; the ubiquitous kinnikinnick and less common mountain lady's slipper orchid in flower; Sisu, Hinchman's Finnish Spitz, and Sally the cat; scenic views of nearby streams, fields, and mountains; and people from town and nearby ranches. Illustrated with sketches and watercolors, this wonderful guide—a winner of the Mountains & Plains Regional Book Award for Adult Nonfiction—takes us into the most intimate and outermost corners of western Montana.
"With a few deft sentences her sketches capture life…. Hinchman has a great sense of humor and a light touch."—Bloomsbury Review
