Author Talk: Allen Morris Jones Talk

May 30


Bozeman-based author Allen Morris Jones will talk in the Cordingley Room about his Spur Award-winning book Montana for Kids and his successful follow-up Yellowstone for Kids. Jones also is the author of a highly regarded look at the ethics of hunting, a collection of poetry (recently named a Montana Book Award honor book), and more than 100 published personal essays, profiles, short stories, and other incidental pieces.
Montana for Kids features 24 illustrations created by the author and features stories about the first peoples and how horses came to the region, stories about bison and vigilantes and how Lewis and Clark explored the Missouri and Yellowstone rivers, along with mountain men and gold miners striking it rich, and even some stories about copper kings and railroad barons.
His second children's book Yellowstone for Kids also has 24 illustrations created by Jones to help tell the story. In this book, there also are stories about first peoples trading Yellowstone obsidian to Indian tribes in the East, and explorers putting the very first boat onto Yellowstone Lake, and the Army building a Fort in Mammoth Hot Springs, among others.
