About the Books:
Wild River Pioneers - Author John Fraley (Heroes of the Bob Marshall Wilderness; A Woman’s Way West; Rangers, Trappers, and Trailblazers) knows the Middle Fork of the Flathead River and its stories as well as anyone. Wild River Pioneers is his collection of true tales about shootouts, grizzly bear attacks, a murder (and a hanging), secret caves, fortunes won and lost, a wily Josephine Doody bootlegging in Glacier National Park, and an ice cream–eating pet bear, and more.

Heroes of the Bob Marshall Wilderness - is a look into the adventurous men and women who have worked and played in Montana’s largest designated wilderness. A living legend in his own right, author John Fraley tasked himself with collecting the tales of the heroes both past and present, from Joe Murphy’s trail rides in the 1920s to rangers raising their young kids each deep in the Bob today. Fraley’s passion for the land and the people shows on each page.
