"The Miseducation of Cameron Post," a coming-of-age story set in eastern Montana and written by Miles City native emily m. danforth (sic) was honored last weekend at the High Plains Book...
  •   When Miles City rancher Ty Linger heard about the extensive cattle deaths that an early-season blizzard caused in South Dakota, he decided he should do something more than just shake his head.
