9781560371304: More from the Quarries of Last Chance Gulch, Vol. III

Thirty-two illustrated essays capture varied facets of Helena area history from 1,500 years ago to 1989. Selected from the popular weekly column in the Helena Independent Record, the writings of twelve amateur and professional historians take readers deep into Paleoindian shamans’ caves, atop the Continental Divide with runaway trains on two freezing February nights 89 years apart, and into the hot August streets of East Helena in 1919 when fire blew across town.

John Hancock’s murder in 1901 sounds like a soap opera: the bludgeoning, the insurance policy, the wife’s lover...while the biography of Clara Hodgin explains why the ghost of Grandstreet Theatre is impish and protective. The Wild West isn’t forgotten, with claim jumpers and vigilante hangings—but civilization offers Chautauqua and visiting Norwegian royalty.

Thirty-two facets of the gem that is Helena, in a book to be treasured.
