Summary The people of the Flathead Valley in Kalispell, Montana are used to thinking they live in "the last best place in America." However, the arrival of celebrities and wealthy retirees has driven up land values, while subdivisions and the infrastructure of tourism are eating up the open spaces natives and newcomers alike enjoy. The industrial base of logging, smelting, and millwork is eroding, and new environmental laws conflict with the working and recreational habits of many longtime residents. The tensions roiling northwestern Montana in many ways have turned rural America into today's political front line, with all sides caught in a tense web of conflict, intimidation, and public invective. If ordinary people can sometimes, through inaction, allow extremist violence to grow against friends and neighbors, how--once such a bitter and destructive turn is taken--can a community marshal the will to pull itself back together?
