Allen Morris Jones and Russell Rowland are contemporary authors with novels deeply entrenched in the rural soul and soil of rural Montana. The authors joined Resounds co-hosts Corby Skinner and Anna Paige in the studio to talk about their newest novels (both murder mysteries) set on the agricultural backroads of Montana.

How do you become reacquainted with your native state when you have been gone for 25 years?

Community members have been gathering monthly at the Billings Public Library to discuss and reflect on Native American issues.

This month's lecture was by Aubrey Bertram, staff attorney for the Indian Law Practice group of the Montana Legal Services Association.

"I think it's so important to understand our context and to understand our history," said Bertram. "You can't meaningfully function and you can't really engage with present society if you don't understand how we got to where we are in the first place."
