For three decades, Mike Dennison has reported from the trenches on campaigns, crime and community. He has covered razor-thin victories by Senator Jon Tester. He has helped cover the downfall of Senator Conrad Burns, as well as the conservative senator’s improbable compassion for a liberal friend charged with marijuana possession. Also examined are Governors Brian Schweitzer, Judy Martz and Marc Racicot and Montana’s longest-serving U.S. senator, Max Baucus. And Dennison has tracked down stories beyond the Capitol, from the devastating fall of the Montana Power Company to a teenager falsely accused of rape who waited sixteen years to be fully exonerated. Dennison treats readers to the rare insights and highlights of a storied career in journalism, along with revelations that have never been exposed—until now.
