Ditch the Desk and hang on to your cowboy hat! We will be taking a step back in time to the early 1900’s in Montana…
History contains many untold stories of the average pioneer. Evelyn Cameron was one such woman but she was anything but average. Carved out of a wealthy family in London, Lady Cameron and her husband sought adventure and fortune in the wilds of Montana. Yet, when they arrived in Prairie County, Montana they would find that while this land was full of beauty, it was also a hard life. Evelyn Cameron chronicled her day to day life in meticulous journals and shared the seemingly smallest of details while also shedding light on what it took to live in the untamed country of Montana.
When her journals and pictures were first discovered, it was regarded as a historical gold mine of information. According to the official Evelyn Cameron Heritage Inc website, it is only through her thousands of pictures that we have a view into the life of the every day woman out on the prairie of Montana. So, if you have ever wanted to peek inside of history… take a moment and learn about the life of Evelyn Cameron, view her pictures and read her journals which exemplify life on the prairie in the 1900’s.
Evelyn’s most famous quote is as follows: “I wish I would lead a life worthy to look back upon, I am far out of the path now.” A PBS documentary that was made about her was entitled, “Pictures from a Worthy Life”. Her pictures, while just a money making endeavor at the time, are now considered a historical treasure… and that sounds like a worthy life to all.
