It Takes All Kinds – Stories From Virginia City




Former Madison County Sheriff “Pop” Brook once observed that, “it
takes all kinds to make a world, and we’ve got ‘em all right here in
Virginia City.”

That droll remark inspired Bozeman native Dick Pace to develop a book project profiling some of Virginia City’s wonderful and colorful characters. Although Pace was unable to complete the project before he passed away, he left an outline and chapter drafts which local historian Gary Forney used to complete this poignant token of Pace’s 40 year legacy, living and working in Virginia City.

The new book It Takes All Kinds blends history, humor and tragedy in the stories of the famous—and infamous—along with a few lesser-known personalities who played a role in the life of Virginia City. Many have called this old town their home, and thousands of others visit this unique community annually, but it would be a very different place if not for the efforts of those profiled in this entertaining collection.

Copies of It Takes All Kinds can be purchased from the Thompson-Hickman
County Library in Virginia City (406) 843-5346 or, or at area bookstores. All proceeds from the sale of the book are being donated to the building addition project of the Library.
