|Description||Veteran presenter Ellwein brings Buffalo Hunter Yellowstone Vic Smith (1850-1925) to life in a poignant and often
humorous first-person portrayal set in 1900. Victor Grant Smith had a varied career as an army scout and dispatch rider, trapper and hunter and trick shot artist and storyteller. Based on Smith¿s memoir, Ellwein recounts Smith¿s experiences with the likes of George Armstrong Custer, Sitting Bull and Theodore Roosevelt. This program can lead to a discussion about the demise of the buffalo and conservation as the actor comes out of character after the performance.
Arch Ellwein, independent scholar and actor from Sydney, will lead this program.
The park is 26 miles East of Missoula, off I-90 (exit 130)--follow signs to the park.
