77 Days in September by Ray Gorham

Update:  Today (Jan 27, 2012), the electronic book 77 Days in September by Ray Gorham has now passed 5,000 copies sold.  It’s only available on amazon and keeps breaking records.  It’s not even in hardcopy yet.  The interesting part is that a publisher has not even pounced on the book yet.  People and readers just keep buying it and then refer others.  Let’s see how many books are sold by the end of the year.  Good luck Ray. (Oh, we just uploaded the new cover released today on the 5000 book milestone (below).)   


So here’s my yearly book review. I felt it fitting for this website as its from a Montana author Ray Gorham who wrote 77 days in September.  The book has been published about 5 months now and I was informed that over 1500 books so far have already been sold.  It’s only available on Kindle at this time but a great read

Bannack State Park – Best Preserved Ghost Town!

These are not ghost but we thought we would see some but no luck.

These are not ghost but we thought we would see some but no luck.

Montana has a real surplus of a few things. They’ve got more sky than they know what to do with (a “big sky” if you will), empty stretches of well-maintained roads, and they’ve also got more ghost towns than any state should ever have need for, especially on a per capita basis. But if you like ghost towns, and I sure as heck do, the best one in Montana is easily Bannack State Park in Dillon.

And if you want to hunt ghosts, there’s no better (more…)
