S.B. Gilstad wrote "The roar sounded like the end of the world."Gilstad was referring to the 7.5 magnitude earthquake that rocked Montana's Yellowstone country on the evening of August 17, 1959, & this evening (Tuesday) at 6 o'clock, I'll be up at the Marias Heritage Center here in Shelby reading & sharing more of the book, "The 1959 Yellowstone Earthquake" by Larry Morris. It's a riveting read for sure with a foreword by Lee Whittlesey, Yellowstone National Park Historian. In the book, Acclaimed historian Larry Morris tells the gripping minute-by-minute sage of the survivors who endured the interminable night, the first responders who risked their lives & the families who waited days & weeks for word of their missing loved ones. How exciting is this book? Let me tell you, I've asked Judy to supply me with a safety harness on my reading chair just in case! See you tonight at 6 for more Montana History at the Heritage.
