One task was left to me before leaving Montana, to bid farewell to Windy Pass.

-- A Hunger for High Country: One Woman’s Journey to the Wild in Yellowstone Country by Susan Marsh, published by the Oregon State University Press.

Marsh was one of the first generation of women to work in the field for the US Forest Service. Starting in the 1970s, Marsh worked in the National Forests surrounding Yellowstone National Park, first in Montana and then for many years in Wyoming.

A Hunger for High Country is Marsh's first-hand account of the adventures she lived, as well as a history of the region and the agency she worked for.
