Backroads of Montana

(No. 143) A Stones Throw From Anywhere

Rating: TV-G

The Backroads crew travels across Montana visiting its unique people and places.

On this episode, curlers slide into Havre for the annual bonspiel where we follow a team from the small north central town of Rudyard as they compete in one of the oldest team sports known to man. Backroads highlights two young rodeo stars-in-the-making from Worden at the Little Britches Rodeo in Laurel.

Hot Spring's Troy DeRoche first began playing his Native American flutes as a way to sell them. But it's his music that has taken him around the world. And along a secondary road, we'll explore the subtleties of "the old fashioned country hello." At the monthly square dance in Plains, Backroads of Montana host William Marcus tries his hand at the do-si-do and dance calling.
