A new 256-page book titled "First Roots: The Story of Stevensville, Montana's Oldest Community" chronicles in incredible detail with text, photographs and drawings the story of Stevensville, the oldest permanent community in Montana. The book focuses on the founding era of Stevensville's history, which covers the period from its founding in September of 1841 with the establishment of St. Mary's Mission there by the Jesuits through the forced departure from the Bitterroot Valley of the Flathead (Salish) Indians, to whom the area was their homeland, north to the Jocko Valley in 1891 where the Flathead Indian Reservation was created.
(Key Words: History, Montana, Stevensville, Flathead, Salish).
