I'm presenting a power point presentation about Mattie Shipley Culver at the West Yellowstone Public Library on Saturday, July 21 at 2 pm.

I will approach the trail to Mattie's history by following her home sources. Please join us for a discussion following the presentation.

I often get personal letters about Chip's biography. Here are some reviews from readers on Amazon:

5.0 out of 5 stars This book about the Yellowstone Chip added great depth to the story of this amazing old dude ...
By Valerie Otto
I started out exploring history of the OTO and Dick Randall for our BSA Mountain Valley District Spring camp. This book about the Yellowstone Chip added great depth to the story of this amazing old dude ranch, and to the story of the settling of Montana. Thanks!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful informative book
By Ruby Jane
Wonderful informative book, well written and man historical pictures. The accompanying CD by special order is a must have.
We hope Nan produces more books of this historical importance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun trip back to a bygone era
By Jennifer
A great read about a fun character, Yellowstone Chip. Truly brings to life the days of a bygone era: farm life for a young boy in a small town in Illinois; the hardships and pleasures of venturing West and homesteading in Montana; and the very early days of Yellowstone National Park. Chip did it all and fulfilled his childhood dream of becoming a real western cowboy. Along the way are some great tales.
