“One Summer In Montana”
After reading several books that coincidentally were all about people living in Montana, with descriptions of the most beautiful landscapes and the mention of ranches and cowboy boots thrown in, this German girl thinks Montana must be really worth seeing. She asks her American friend whether she’s ever been to Montana, and the reaction is something along the lines of “No. Why would I want to go there? What’s there to see in Montana?” So the German friend tells her about those books, and the mention of Montana becomes a running gag between the two. Whenever the German girl meets new Americans, she asks them whether they’ve ever been to Montana but has yet to meet someone who has.
One day she decides to use all her annual leave, pack her favourite green summer dress and her new cowboy boots, and visit Montana for one summer. This book is a journal of her Montana road trip.
Personally, I prefer to submit only 1 picture for a challenge, but I really couldn’t make up my mind; I asked friends for advice but again it was a draw. So just like in the real world, there is now a UK edition and a US edition available of this book 😉 And BTW – this story is true, up to the bit where she actually travels… that’s just wishful thinking on my part.

PS: If anyone from Monatana happens to read this post, I would love to hear about the beauty of your state! 🙂
