About the author (1996)

Tapping the extensive archives of the Powell County Museum, the Grant-Kohrs Ranch, and private collections, Deer Lodge historian Lyndel Meikle presents the story of this mountain town, along with the massive Grant-Kohrs Ranch National Historic Site and the Old Montana Prison. Today the historic prison and ranch rest like bookends south and north of this pioneer town, wherein the story of early Montana can be read.
