Brink Sisters Share Ranching Stories at CCHS Class Reunions Sept 7, 20


The authors of "Montana Stirrups, Sage and Shenanigans: Ranch Life in a Forgotten Era" will share ranching stories from their book on Sunday, Sept 7, and again on Saturday, Sept. 20, both at 2 pm, at the Miles City Library.

Jeanie Brink Thiessen of Los Angeles, Francie Brink Berg, Hettinger, ND, and Anne Brink Krickel, Philipsburg, will be in town for two CCHS Class Reunions, where they will also entertain-for Jeanie's 1948 reunion the first weekend and Anne's 1954 reunion two weeks later.

The sisters tell short lively stories of ranching, wildlife and western humor. They grew up on the historic Brink ranch ten miles east of Miles City on I-94. Last summer when they launched their book in Miles City and Jordan, they and current owner Wm. (Butch) Krutzfeldt led a tour of historic trails on the ranch with its spectacular view from towering Yellowstone River bluffs.

Montana Stirrups is an old west epic with a modern touch. A social history as well, it tells of the uncommon people of the west, who appreciated nature, wide-open spaces, tolerance, hospitality and western humor.

The 408-page book Montana Stirrups, Sage and Shenanigans: Western Ranch Life in a Forgotten Era, is illustrated with over 260 historic family photos. Available in softcover (29.95) and hardcover (39.95) in bookstores, gift shops and by mail from Flying Diamond Books, 402 S. 14th St, Hettinger, ND 58639 (701-567-2646). Online
