Becoming

ByBetty Whiting

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Anna Mueller, a Swiss immigrant, becomes enmeshed in Montana politics and community events from 1908 to 1936 in Becoming. Experience the excitement and sorrows of homesteading, the right for women to vote, WWI, the discovery of oil, the KKK, the Sedition Act, discrimination, farmers' rights, the flu epidemic, mental illness, and death in this Montana saga. With a tender tension between them, Anna learns from her older, adventurous husband how to survive and thrive in a sparsely populated state where resource development, new technologies, and divergent cultural attitudes prevail. Their children set off on their own diverse paths. Not all of them find happiness. Enjoy a stirring account of what once was the way of life in Montana and what becomes of one family.
