Daniel Kohr's parents moved to Garnet, Mont., in 1945-1946. By 1951, his parents had moved out and only went back in the summers. He talked about his relatives who lived there. His father was a partner in the Mountain View mine and two other mines and Daniel helped his father in the mines. During the summer many relatives came to Garnet to work the mines and to visit; Kohr describes their cabins and individual relatives. They hunted and fished, had gardens, and were self-sufficient. He tells stories about the Dahls and merchandise in Davey's store after Davey died and the furnishings of the hotel and the blacksmith's shop.
