Join Ednor Therriault for a book signing at Country Bookshelf for his newest book BIG SKY, BIG PARKS.
Montana is home to two of America’s most popular national parks, and many of the twelve million visitors who travel to Big Sky Country each year include both Glacier and Yellowstone in their plans. It’s a full day’s drive between these two western jewels, and there are dozens of routes road trippers can select to build their journey. There are also thousands of travel guides on the shelf that provide information about the region, but Big Sky, Big Parks is unique among them, a blend of history, culture, and local flavor that’s more of an entertaining travel companion and a useful resource for those visiting the two national parks and the vast chunk of Montana that connects them. Author Ednor Therriault shares his experiences on the road and in the parks with humor and insight in thirty stories that chronicle the triumphs and tragedies that make traveling between Glacier and Yellowstone such a rewarding endeavor. Discover the reasons behind Yellowstone’s devilish place names and read about Butte’s version of Disneyland in this road trip handbook/travelogue that features insider tips on regional delicacies, interesting places to lay your head, local trivia, and even road trip playlists to provide a soundtrack to your Montana adventure.
Part humorist, part journalist, part storyteller, Ednor Therriault brings a unique perspective to his work. His first book, 2009’s Montana Curiosities, became the best-selling title in Globe Pequot’s Curiosities series. The second edition was released in 2013. He spends much of his time crisscrossing the state, researching history and culture and gathering stories from his fellow Montanans. Ednor has published eight titles in all, including Haunted Montana, Myths and Legends of Yellowstone, and Seven Montanas.
The Missoula-based writer has written articles for several regional magazines and local papers, including Mountain Outlaw, Distinctly Montana, and the late, lamented Missoula Independent. Ednor specializes in nonfiction and cannot stop himself from injecting his quirky humor into much of his writing.
His latest book, Big Sky, Big Parks, came out in July 2023 on TwoDot.
