It's that time again to feature one (or more) of your local authors! Last month, I discovered some really great authors and added a few more books to my list!! I wonder how many I will add this month?!?! :)
What local author have I read this month? I'm going with my ol' standbye of a Montana author (or at least I think one of them is a local Montana author). We . . . let me rephrase . . . my son received this book as a gift from one of his grandparents. They always shop local and I am really going off of this knowledge that at least one of these authors are local for that reason. I tried to do a little research on the authors and the book before posting the review, but could not find a thing. I even found it difficult to find copies available to purchase. The book was published by an Arizona company, but it is set in the beautiful Yellowstone National Park. For those that do not know, a very small part of the Park is in southwestern Montana. It is an absolutely beautiful place. In fact, I'm going to share a little of this beauty with you . . . just keep on scrolling down after my review!! Oh, and before I forget . . . my review . . .
Next month, I am hoping to feature a more recent local author! I haven't lived in Montana for years, so I will try to expand my horizons a little more and pass on this expansion to you next month!! Now for a little extra . . . the pictures . . .Mammoth Hot Springs, Yellowstone National Park (June 2009)
