From the first day a couple moves to Montana to fulfill their fantasies of going west and becoming nature photographers in that legendary state, a very different reality assaults them. Far from the Elk Dreams they've been living with, they find their pasts and the also legendary hostilities of the state nearly too much to bear. Everything and everyone seems to embody a prevalent bumper sticker: WELCOME TO MONTANA: NOW GO HOME. Add in a terrible streak of bad luck, emotional difficulties, a tremendous natural disaster, and other problems and you have a recipe for tragedy and personal disintegration. Far from becoming the nature photographers they dream of being, they instead discover just how trying and destructive living a fantasy life can be. Elk Dreams, A Montana Memoir is a memoir that is definitely not in love with that state.
