PREVENTION is key to behavioral health. Adequate SOCIALIZATION of young animals both with their species and with humans is essential for normal psychological health and mental development. Appropriate training that appreciates the nature of the dog, cat, and horse is a veterinary behavior essential, as well.

THE EVOLUTION AND DOMESTICATION OF THE WOLF
Tuesdays, 2:30-4:30 p.m. • Nov. 23 to Dec. 14 • Museum of the Rockies
Shared geographies, social structures, survival strategies, and communication skills facilitated the eventual pairing of wolves with prehistoric man. Dog became mankind’s earliest animal partner thousands of years ago. What characteristics of men and wolves led to their eventual partnership? What wolf behaviors do dogs retain after thousands of years of selective breeding? Join us for a study of the development of the human/canine bond through time.

HORSES THEY RODE
“This is a fascinating novel.”
Jim Harrison, author of Legends of the Fall and Dalva
When I started reading this fine novel, I was at
first taken aback, then disturbed. After fifty
pages, I realized -- or more accurately, admitted --
why: I was humbled. Sid Gustafson's understanding
of Montana -- real cowboys and Indians, and the
love-hate dependency that ties them, the land, and
its animals together -- is bone deep, blood true,
and beautifully described.
Neil McMahon, author of Twice Dying, Blood Double and the forthcoming Lone Creek, HarperCollins / April 2007 -- set in and around Helena, Montana.
Few novelists have a sense of place,
for Americans are a rootless people.
Sid’s is acute, and he tells a great story
of his land and the people on it,
and in it…
Peter Bowen, author of Coyote Wind and the Gabriel Du Pré Montana Mysteries
“Sid Gustafson writes like the language is a race horse and he is the rider, ready to go as far and fast as they both can go. He is in love with words, especially as they attach to the weather, terrain and inhabitants of Montana’s Rocky Mountain Front, one of the most unforgiving and beautiful regions on the planet. He knows what he’s talking about. Listen to him.”
