Montana History MAKING History

I’m ready to read MORE “Montana History” this evening (Tuesday) up at the Marias Heritage Center here in Shelby. This evening I plan to read a chapter or two of “As I Remember” by Marias Heritage Center resident Tom J. Scalese. Years back, Tom’s friends used to tell him that he “ought to write & book” & “Talkative”-Tom went out & did just that & MORE! We enjoyed some of Tom’s book last week during “Montana History” & this evening I’ll be sharing another chapter or 2 of Tom’s tales. I’m also planning to begin “The Story of Mary Ronan”. It’s “Girl from the Gulches” as told to Margaret Ronan edited by Ellen Baumler who’s an Interpretive Historian at the Montana Historical Society down in Helena. The “Girl from the Gulches”  is a detailed memoir recalling young  Mary Sheehan Ronan’s journey across the Great Plains, her childhood on the Colorado & Montana mining frontiers, her ascent to young womanhood on a farm in southern California, her experiences as a student in a Los Angeles convent school, her return to Montana as a bride, & her life on the Flathead Indian Reservation as wife of the Indian agent. The exhilaration of a forbidden sled ride, the creaking of the hangman’s rope, her father giving the last of their water to his dying mule-these things Ronan describes with vivid clarity. See you tonight at 6 for more “Montana History” at the Heritage Center.
