Voicing the Dead-A Poetic History of Early Day Carbon County, Montana

By Steve Robbins

If some of Carbon County¹s earliest resident could speak from the grave, what would they tell us about their lives and the history of Carbon County?

Steve Robbins¹ new book, Voicing the Dead, a Poetic History of Carbon County, Montana, features over 250 speakers imaginatively speaking about their lives in early-day Carbon County. The poems draw on oral histories, county records, newspaper stories, trial records, and secondary sources.

Footnotes to each speaker provide factual information and important genealogical sources. An appendix provides several essays on the early development of Red Lodge, and an index references hundreds of Carbon County names and locations.
