Information on working terriers, dogs, natural history, hunting, and the environment, with occasional political commentary as I see fit. This web log is associated with the Terrierman.com web site.
Bob Scriver made this portrait of Shep after I was gone, but I've visited it. Fort Benton is an excellent place to visit because of its history. Its location is where steamboats couldn't go any farther up the river. From here it was wagons or portage to smaller boats, which is what Lewis and Clark did. Bob's monument of L and C plus Sacajawea and her baby is along the river. Bob's set of dozens of portraits of Blackfeet is housed in a reconstruction of the original Fort Benton. For a while Fort Benton was the agency for the Blackfeet Reservation and the capitol of the state. But then the governor disappeared off the deck of a steamboat tied there and was never found.The town houses a whole cluster of historical museums and a good bookstore.Prairie MaryAKA Mary ScriverValier, MT
