Charles M. Russell was an artist and storyteller who created more than 4,000 works of art on environmental and Western themes. The campus of The C.M. Russell Museum in Great Falls is the size of a city block and includes his home and studio. It has more than 12,000 objects on display in its permanent collection as well as temporary exhibits.

Try seeking out Russell’s Trails Plowed Under, which features his writing, illustrations, and painting all in one work, as well as an introduction by Will Rogers. (You may find it at www.gutenberg.org.)

The C.M. Russell Museum is the second stop on our Montana Trail!
