Historian Aaron Parrett reads from his new book, Montana: Then and Now.
Aaron Parrett is on the faculty at the University of Great Falls, where he teaches literature and philosophy. His work has appeared in many books and journals, most recently in The Complete Montana Gothic and The Old-Time Herald. He was born in Butte at St. James Hospital.
"In the tradition of Joseph Kinsey Howard and K. Ross Toole, Aaron Parrett interrogates Montana as both place and idea, revealing that what has long distinguished the state-robust island communities surrounded by a sea of redemptive space-has largely survived."
--Edwin Dobb, U.C. Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism
