We’re Leaving We’ve Had Enough
We'll be leaving Somers, Montana tonight (Tuesday) in our "armchair traveling" up at the Marias Heritage Center here in Shelby as we conclude the book, "Somers, Montana: The Company Town." It's been a good read, & this evening we'll be beginning a new book during Montana History at the Heritage. Welcome aboard the true tale of "Montana's Waldron Creek Fire: The 1931 Tragedy And The Forgotten Five." On August 25, 1931, 5 men died fighting the devastating Waldron Creek Fire west of Choteau. The book's author, National Smokejumper Association chief historian Dr. Charles Palmer, shines a light on this imporantt story, finally honoring the heroic sacrifice that led to critical changes in wildland firefighting. Check out the book from The History Press at: www.historypress.net. See you tonight at 6 for more Montana History at the Heritage Center. Goodbye Somers, Hello Choteau!.
