Montana’s Wild and Scenic
Upper Missouri River:


A Guidebook for Montana's Upper Missouri National
Wild and Scenic River
and the Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument

by Glenn Monahan

Published by Northern Rocky Mountains Books; NEW 3rd edition Copyright 2015; 270 pages.

The only available guide book for Montana’s Upper Missouri National Wild and Scenic River, and the Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument. Having this book in your canoe will significantly enhance your experience on the river. The core of the book is the "History Digest", consisting of a 175 page, mile-by-mile river log of historic events and locations along the river, keyed to the U.S. Bureau of Land Management maps that are commonly used by floaters. Canoe paddlers can identify their location on the BLM maps, and cross-reference their location with the History Digest to read about the history of that particular location.

The history digest includes over one hundred descriptive narratives which provide interesting information about each of the thirteen Lewis and Clark campsites on the Upper Missouri, as well as on the fur trading fort sites, steamboat landings, Indian habitation sites, and the old homestead buildings that floaters pass on the river.

Additional chapters include: "Historical Overview", "Geology", "Wildlife", and a chapter entitled "Floating the Missouri", which provides information and tips for persons planning a float trip on Montana’s Upper Missouri National Wild and Scenic River, and the Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument.
