Saturday, November 4: University of Montana professor Ted Catton joins us for a reading from his new book, Rainy Lake House. 1pm.
Rainy Lake House weaves together the captivating stories of three men who cast their fortunes in different ways with the western fur trade. Drawing on their combined experiences, Theodore Catton creates a vivid depiction of the beautiful and dangerous northern frontier from a collision of vantage points: American, British, and Indian; imperial, capital, and labor; explorer, trader, and hunter.
Ted Catton is an associate research professor of history at the University of Montana. He is the author of Inhabited Wilderness: Indians, Eskimos, and Alaska’s National Parks and
American Indians and National Forests.
