About this title


This collection of essays about the Yaak Valley in northwestern Montana brings to life the wilderness and isolation, exhilaration and trepidation that visitors (and residents) encounter here. The half-million-acre Yaak Valley is home to only 150 people but untold numbers of elk, deer, grizzly bears, cougars, and other critters, big and small. An astonishing 175,000 acres remain roadless in this remote territory near the Canadian border. Read about a mother who spends Thanksgiving weekend in the Yaak with her children. ....the Yaak is where my children and I together have fallen headlong into the glory of the unfamiliar, into the last of the planet's wilderness, the unpredictability of the natural landscape, the authentic hush possible only away from the clamor." (from "Traveling Close to Home" by Debra Gwartney). You will learn about a teacher who is torn between the world beyond the Yaak and the life he has come to know: mountains, thick forests, snow, and bears. And you will learn why we as a people must protect wilderness like this for future generations.

From the Back Cover:

[A] poignant collection. . . . the most important message you will find along this journey of essays is the importance of protecting such precious land for future generations.”
Outside Bozeman


This landmark collection about a pristine American valley known as the Yaak” features memorable essays from some of the most distinguished writers of the New West.” The Yaak Valley of northwestern Montana is where the wilderness and isolation of a million acres overwhelms the imagination, and these essays capture the exhilaration and trepidation that visitors (and residents) encounter in this astonishing place. The million-acre Yaak Valley is home to only a small human population, but untold numbers of elk, deer, grizzly bears, cougars, and other critters, big and small, roam freely here, in large part because 175,000 acres remain roadless. In The Roadless Yaak, Rick Bass and his fellow writers make a compelling argument for why the Yaak must remain wild.
