Missoula Book Description :

Missoula began in 1860 as Hellgate Village, a trading post located about 4 miles west of what is now downtown. In 1864, the construction of a mill powered by water diverted from Rattlesnake Creek drew residents of Hellgate to the new town, and the arrival of the Northern Pacific Railroad in 1883 assured Missoula's future. The establishment of the University of Montana led to growth on the south side of the Clark Fork River, and the timber industry drove the economy. Missoula has evolved into a trade, medical, educational, and governmental center of western Montana.

Fort Missoula Book Description :

Born of perceived military necessity and local economic boosterism, “the beautiful little post on the Bitterroot” provided a home for the US Army in Montana from 1877 onward. Called into service almost by accident for the 1877 Nez Perce War, Fort Missoula hosted African American Buffalo Soldiers, aviation pioneers, early military automobile mechanics, Civilian Conservation Corps workers, World War II Italian and Japanese national internees, US military prisoners, and a variety of US Army and Navy units. The base bequeathed to its community a level of sophistication and a connection to the national story unique to the American West. Fort Missoula’s architectural legacy also reflects the nation’s journey from frontier settlement to world power as an assortment of log structures evolved into “the Million Dollar Post.”

Historic Underground Missoula Book Description :

Much of Missoula's history lies beneath the surface. As in many Old West cities, cavernous underground tunnel systems purportedly hid countless nefarious activities, from clandestine prostitution and Chinese opium dens to booze running during Prohibition. These sordid tales captivate today's residents and beg questions about the city's furtive past. Did local elite gentlemen mask their carnal habits there? Did John Wayne really use the passageways to run personal errands unnoticed? Author and urban archaeologist Nikki Manning ventures below to reconcile oral history with archaeological data in a fascinating exploration of Missoula's subterranean labyrinths.

"The Road to Missoula" is an engrossing story of an Italian immigrant family, portraying the challenges, joys, and triumphs they face from the time of their arrival at Ellis Island at the beginning of the 20th century and through the ensuing decades as they learn to balance their Italian cultural heritage with the ways of their new home in America. Recounting childhoods, marriages, love, death, and the occasional brush with the law, the story interweaves significant and true world political events of the time with their traumatic, exciting and suspenseful effects on the family. It personalizes cultural and religious clashes, and provides insight into ethnic identity crises and solutions. "The Road to Missoula" skillfully explores through one family's experience the human emotions and drives we all share-love, anger, jealousy, fear, ambition, disappointment, adventure, and happiness.

Missoula Book Description :

Missoula, Montana, is home to a highly regarded state university whose beloved football team inspires a rabidly loyal fan base. Between January 2008 and May 2012, the Department of Justice investigated 350 sexual assaults reported by students to the Missoula police. Many of the alleged perpetrators played for the Grizzlies. Few of the cases were properly handled by either the university or local authorities. In Missoula, Krakauer chronicles the searing experiences of some of the victims: the nights when they were raped; their fear and self-doubt in the aftermath; the way they were treated by police, prosecutors, and defense attorneys; their bravery in pushing forward and what it cost them. Krakauer's dispassionate, rigorously documented account of what these women endured cuts through the abstract ideological debate about campus rape. College-age women are not raped because they are promiscuous, or send mixed signals, or seek attention. They are the victims of a terrible crime, deserving of fairness from a justice system that is clearly broken.
