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