Montana Stirrups, Sage & Shenanigans Book Talk

Great Falls, Montana – The Great Falls Public Library is hosting a book talk on Tuesday, September 10th, from Noon to 1:30 pm with Phillipsburg author Anne Krickel and her sisters Francie Berg of North Dakota, and Jeanie Thiessen, of Los Angeles.  The three sisters will share ranching stories from their new book Montana Stirrups, Sage, and Shenanigans:Western Ranch Life in a Forgotten Era.  The Brink sisters grew up on an historic 1880’s cattle ranch where the owner once free-ranged thousands of cattle on both sides of the Yellowstone River.

The Brink sisters entertain with music, history and storytelling. They will also have books available for purchase, which they will sign.

This memoir is an old west epic with a modern touch and is filled with vivid personal stories of ranching, wildlife, and western humor.  It is a social history as well, of the uncommon people of the west, who practiced tolerance and respect and extended hospitality to strangers.  The book also includes over 260 historic family photos.

For more information on this free talk, call 453-0349.
