"Lillian's story is compelling, a study in individual courage and faith."
"This well written book held my attention from first page to last and along the way I learned a lot about turn-of-the-century New York and Montana."
""The Montana Frontier" is not only a labor of love, but also a tale about a truly amazing woman, in a truly amazing time in the life of our country."
"We cannot help but admire Lillian and all the other women who built homes and raised families in the harsh, unwelcoming environment of the American West."
""The Montana Frontier" will appeal to fans of narrative history. . It illuminates a woman's life on the Great Plains. . Litz is an excellent storyteller who fills a niche historians often neglect."
"Through Liilian Hazen's letters, diaries and stories, life in early Lewistown area emerges, especially the struggles women had in those years. Because Hazen was a journalist, trained to notice details others might miss, hers is a particularly revealing account of that life."
"Litz provides historians with a nuanced, complicated character, both in love with the West and challenged by it--a woman trapped by the cultural and economic constraints of the time in which she lived. Lillian Hazen reminds us that the individuality of the western character is, perhaps, its only true unifying character."
"[Lillian's] story enlivens the history of the waning frontier."
