An article in the May/June 2017 issue of Montana outdoors.

In the early 1970s, the U.S. Department of the Interior proposed building an array of coal-fired power plants, dams, and aqueducts in the northern plains. The plan, in part, would have diverted 30% of Yellowstone River's annual flow and flooded part of Paradise Valley. Many persons in Montana banded together to fight the impoundment of Paradise Valley. This short article describes these events, and tells how the film "The Yellowstone Concerto," produced by Jim Posewitz, and the Montana Outdoors special Yellowstone issue (vol. 8, no. 2) played a role. The article is of particular relevance to ARLIS's Susitna Hydroelectric Project collection because the last paragraph mentions this ARLIS webpage as a source for these documents on the preservation of the Yellowstone River.
