On this episode of Resounds: Arts and Culture on the High Plains, co-hosts Anna Paige and Corby Skinner sit down with prolific Montana authors Gary Ferguson and John Clayton


Gary Ferguson has written more than twenty nonfiction books on nature and science including Hawks Rest: A Season in the Remote Heart of Yellowstone and The Carry Home. As a nature writer, his books focus on issues of ecology and conservation with a particular focus on how people interact with nature. His new book is Land on Fire.

 John Clayton's new book, Wonderlandscape: Yellowstone National Park and the Evolution of an American Cultural Icon, is a fascinating history of both Yellowstone park itself and of what Americans wanted and needed as a country when it was first formed.
