Publication Date: 1910
352 p. The historical association of Montana played a critical role in recording and preserving the history of the. state to be admitted to the United States union, and its lore and legend play a large part in American history because of its vast size but perhaps more than that because its population is small but because many of the folks who made Montana played outsize roles. Montana is legend in the history of the west and particularly of the Northwest as the nation sought natural resources (fur, fish, gold, etc.) and sought passage to the western waterways and to the Pacific Ocean. This book includes twenty-seven illustrations: photographs of persons, places, actions, and maps and charts.
