Montana Historical Society: "Where Did Our Public Lands Come From?" Presentation and book signing with John Clayton
Although many people today think of public lands as an American birthright, their very existence was at one point in doubt. In honor of Public Lands Day, join John Clayton in discovering an origin story for public lands...one that has a climax in Montana! John will draw on his experience writing Natural Rivals: John Muir, Gifford Pinchot, and the Creation of America’s Public Lands, and copies of his book will be available for purchase. An outdoor enthusiast and the author of five books, John Clayton is an independent author, journalist, essayist, and sustainable-business content developer based in Montana.
