Book: Inventing Montana

Ted Leeson, author of Inventing Montana: Dispatches from the Madison Valley (Skyhorse Publishing, $25) posits an interesting theory: the moniker “Montana” doesn’t strictly refer to the geographic place that is our home, but rather a personal interpretation of an area—our own “invention.” This charming fish story follows five friends and the “Montana” they create, meeting every year for two decades and sampling the world-class fishing of the Madison Valley. With 12 essays featuring deep insights delivered through amazing prose, this book is an insightful must-have for fans of fishing, great literature, or both.
