Book: Images of America

Regional history is even more vividly showcased in two recent installments of the Images of America series (Arcadia Publishing, $20-$22 depending on the title). Both the West Yellowstone and Bozeman iterations, by Paul Shea and Denise Glaser Malloy, respectively, use historic photos to bring to life the rich history of these iconic Montana towns. Postcards, advertisements, and other pop-culture images complete the picture of how our Montana forbears lived under the same Big Sky we do.
