Dark Spaces: Montana's Historic Penitentiary at Deer Lodge, by Ellen Baumler
By Ellen Baumler, with photos by J.M. Cooper. Softcover, 117 pages.
The penitentiary at Deer Lodge, established in 1870, was Montana Territory's first federal facility. In 1889 it became a state penal institution serving in that capacity until 1979. Historian Ellen Baumler tells the physical and human tale of the troubled institution; J.M. Cooper's detailed photos of the prison's interiors and exteriors combine with historic images to illustrate the stories of the people who lived and died within its walls.
