I liked the history especially about WWI and Butte MT. The research was fantastic. The family details were interesting, thought provoking and at times a bit tedious. Some of the instances probably could have been skipped to make the book flow faster and still inform the reader of the story. Still, the book was an amazing family history which will make one wonder about the history of one's own family.
