      71708 So, how did Yaak, Montana get it's name? According to Rick Bass:
      (The word "Yaak") "is a Kootenai Indian word.   It means arrow.   The Yaak (river) comes so straight down out of the mountains
      that it’s in the shape of an arrow, and it intersects the curve of the Kootenai River, which is shaped like a bow."*
      * Rick Bass "The Roadles Yaak: Reflections and Observations About One of Our Last Great Wild Places."
