Product Description

100 Days of Solitude

Amy Rae Pearson's first book of poems documents her experience as a fire lookout on Jumbo Mountain in the Bob Marshall Wilderness during one of the biggest fire seasons in decades.

Jumbo is one of the most remote lookouts in the Lower 48, sixty miles south of Spotted Bear Ranger Station and twenty-two miles west of its closest entry point at Benchmark.

Her book describes a spectrum of moments from awe over the natural beauty to alarm regarding proximity to grizzly bears.

John Fraley notes, “If you love the Bob Marshall Wilderness or any wilderness, this book is required reading.”

All of the poems and photos included in the collection were created in solitude on Jumbo Mountain.

Amy notes that at its heart, this book is a testament to wilderness and connection to the natural world.

The publication of 100 Days was funded in part by the Flathead Kootenai Chapter of the Montana Wilderness Association.


Amy Pearson is a writer, teacher, photographer, and wilderness advocate. She grew up on the plains of MT and earned a Ph.D. in organizational communication from Arizona State University. After finishing her formal education, she hit the road to Asia for a few years, but found herself missing the Rocky Mountains where she’d spent five seasons working in Glacier National Park. She came home and spent a winter working at the Izaak Walton Inn and a summer working at Jumbo Lookout for the Spotted Bear Ranger District. She currently works as a Professor of Humanities at Flathead Valley Community College and as a fire lookout for the Forest Service.
