Hi! Ray Schmidt Sr., the former owner of the Dairy Queen, has written a book about growing up during the Great Depression and moving to Miles City in the 1960s. Lots of funny and very interesting stories about M.C. and how people really lived "back in the day." It's a great history lesson for anyone.

Here is the link to the book:

http://www.amazon.com/Farm-Fast-Foo...he+farm+to+fast+food

Also, for educational purposes, it is free to students and teachers and to anyone else who isn't able to afford a copy. For a free copy, please email Amy Schmidt Ray at amy(AT)maray.org.

Just bought it for my kindle! Can't wait to read it. I loved going to the Dairy Queen...Mr. Schmidt would ask, "and what can I get for you today Miss Carlson?"...what a sweet man!

Ray and Marie were my neighbors when I first moved to Miles City. They knew I was from Laurel and they still took the Laurel Outlook. Marie would bring my articles about my family when they were in there. I will definitely be getting the book!!

Hi, Sunny! I guess I need to make it available on iTunes as well? Not sure how that works, but I could probably figure it out. You can read it on your computer too. Under the "Buy" button is a link that reads "available on your PC." It will put the Kindle app. on your computer. That's what I did. I don't actually have a Kindle!

Best,

Amy Schmidt Ray

Wonderful news...remember your Dad well. I used to work at the nearby A&W and my brothers particularly were friends of your family in the 1960s. Maiden name was Mahoney. My Mom Violette is still alive and lives in Raleigh near my sister Peggy Wohlgenant (wife of Mike from Kinsey). I live in the Houston area and hope to get to Montana sometime over the next year or so.

I saw your book mentioned on Facebook so I also downloaded a copy. But that was very courageous moving to miles city to start a business with all those kids. It's a good read so far and I like depression era history

Amy - your e-mail address amy(AT)maray.org does not work. I am trying to contact you. Is this address correct? Tells me amy(AT)maray.org is not a legit address.

You are substituting an '@' sign for the "(AT)" in that address, aren't you?
