If you want to get to know Montana, you talk to the people that live here. There are men and women who have worked the land for generations—people with stories beyond the average history book.
“I love local history,” says Ron Garwood, a Nashua farmer/rancher and author of Ron’s Ramblings, a book which explores the characters, critters, and “cantankerous rednecks” of northeast Montana.
From the history of his farmland (at the confluence of the Milk River) to experiences with wild animals to amusing anecdotes about life in rural Montana, Garwood paints a complete picture of the land he calls home. His “ramblings” are, in reality, a series of short stories, well-researched and frequently funny.
“I enjoyed writing it,” he says of the book, which began as a mission to preserve local history. “I have had friends who have passed since I started writing this. There are a lot of things they did that might have been forgotten if I didn’t get it down.”
Ron’s Ramblings is available on Book Baby and Amazon. For more information, call (406) 785-4781.
