Josephine Doody, The Bootleg Lady of Glacier Park, is now celebrated as an icon of the Middle Fork of the Flathead, but how much is the woman and how much is the legend?
Local author and Friend of the Museum John Fraley will try to untangle fact from fiction when he makes his return to the John White Series in March.
“Betty the Trapper” was one of the last people alive who knew Josephine and even spent time at Josephine’s homestead in the Park.
Betty passed away a few years ago; John will recount the story of spreading her ashes on the top of Great Northern Mountain, as well as many other new stories about Middle Fork pioneers since the original edition of Wild River Pioneers was published in 2008.
