|Description||Join us at the park to meet author Lorna Milne shares her newest book "Evelyn Cameron, Photographer on the Western Prairie," a biography of the noted British expatriate who became an extraordinary photographer and chronicled the homesteading of the western frontier.
In 1889, a young spunky British woman of genteel upbringing set sail for the United States. She and her friend, Ewen Cameron, who would later become her husband, were bound for the beautiful but severe landscape of Eastern Montana. In her first biography, Lorna Milne uses diaries and letters to reconstruct how Evelyn lived in the harsh eastern Montana landscape and how she became an extraordinary photographer documenting the homestead period on the western plains.
Signed copies of the book will be available for purchase at the event. For more information, call the visitor center at (406) 377-6256.
