Paradise Valley, located midway between Gardiner and Livingston, Montana, is aptly named.

But the stark beauty of the territory belies the often difficult way of life encountered by the area's early inhabitants.

Author Doris Whithorn has made Paradise Valley her home for 52 years. For much of this time she and her husband, Bill, ran a small service stop, where locals and travelers could purchase gas, fishing gear, groceries, and even lodging. In the early 1950s, residents started to approach Bill about making copies of their treasured family photographs. Thus inspired, the husband and wife team went on to accumulate hundreds of photographs of the area, and spent considerable time in researching the stories behind the images. Through her extensive knowledge of the history of Paradise Valley and samples of her poetry, Doris Whithorn presents a delightful look at old-time Montana. Residents and tourists alike will enjoy this photographic tour through the Wild West of yesteryear. Please join us for this exciting adventure.
