"Butte: Images of America" available from Reading In Montana
The locally long awaited "Butte: Images of America" by Ellen Crain and Lee Whitney of the Butte-Silver Bow Public Archives is now available from Reading In Montana. In addition we also have half as many copies of the Historic Postcards Set with images from the book, "Postcards of America: Butte". We are happily able to offer both items at a discount from the cover price. Items ship directly from the home office in Butte, America and a shipping discount will be provided to folks who order both the book and postcard set shipped to the same address. The images are beautiful and the narrative details in the text are those that could only be written by those that live and breathe this vibrant history such as the staff at the Public Archives.
I've learned quite a lot about the storied history of this mining camp turned metropolitan center called Butte, Montana since Reading In Montana moved here last July. This new volume from the Public Archives fills in a few of the gaps in my knowledge and I'll have to keep at least one copy for the family bookshelf.
Here are a few other Butte books I'd recommend:
