The Milk River flows lazily through some of the loneliest lands of North America, the dry plains of Alberta and Montana. Dwarfed by such giants as the Saskatchewan and Mississippi Rivers, it is as meek as its name and virtually unknown to most North Americans. Yet few streams can match its incredible 1,200-kilometre journey, its magical landscape, or its long and often sad history. Part travelogue, part meditation, River of Dreams follows the Milk River through arid ranches, sagebrush wilderness, badland canyons, and great hills, across Indigenous reservations and into abandoned railroad towns and deserted farms. Blending stunning photography and lyrical prose, author Liz Bryan contemplates the Milk River's indelible role in the history of multiple societies over thousands of years. As both a dividing line between nations and a connective link flowing through a common landscape, this humble waterway carries the hopes, dreams, ambitions, and heartbreaks of countless people-from buffalo hunters to homesteaders, whiskey traders to military forces.
