Description
From its first issue in the spring of 1994,Big Sky Journalhas rapidly established itself as the premier publication in the West. With offices in Bozeman, Montana,Big Sky Journalleads the region with its unique combination of award-winning prose, poetry and photography. Published five times a year and seasonally focused on fishing and hunting, art and architecture, ranching and rodeo,Big Sky Journalhas become the standard against which other literary work in the Northwest is measured. Now, for the first time,Big Sky Journalhas allowed the best writing from their magazine to be collected in one volume. For years the beauty of the Montana landscape has inspired writers, poets and naturalists. From Norman Maclean'sA River Runs Through Itto the works of Rick Bass, William Kittredge, and Russell Chatham, Montana has proven to be an alluring and powerful subject for writers and readers. Here are the personal reflections on Montana and its people-in stories and essays-from some of the finest writers in America today. The contributors toThe Big Sky Readerattempt to give the reader a sense of the spirit of Montana and its place in western literature. We read of ranches and rodeos, saloons, rivers, fires and the never ending Sky. In the end, this amazing treasury captures a sense of country and home and presents a vivid picture of life in the American West. Not since the landmark publication ofThe Last Best Placehas Montana been so clearly and movingly depicted.
