"It's been said that a place doesn't exist until a writer, a photographer, or a painter portrays it and presents a version of it to the rest of the culture." So says historian Dan Flores.

Visions of the Big Sky is the book. Dan Flores is the author/historian. The Write Question is the program. And, for the first time, a program will be continued. Part 1, September 30. Part 2, October 7.

Just a few of the questions you'll hear answered during these two programs: Why do writers congregate in Montana? Did Custer really have a Last Stand? What caused Fra Dana to quit painting? Why did eastern critics pan the landscape photography of Ansel Adams (and should we care what they think)?

Tune in Thursday, September 30 and October 7 -- 6:30 on Yellowstone Public Radio or 7:30 on Montana Public Radio.
