The super-rich weren't always a part of Paradise Valley, Montana.
Like the native Indians who had never encountered the white man before, Montanans had never seen such mansions and ostentatious people move into their state.
The community was the neighbor to protected Yellowstone National Park, with its incredible beauty. Here, home was truly on the range. The deer, antelope, bears and buffalo knew no boundaries, roaming freely through the valley as well as the park.
The characters in Buried Silence are a mixture of native Montanans and the flashy newcomers. This had been the land where proud, weather-beaten people stood by their word. Now came residents who stood, not by their word, but indiscreetly on top of their money.
