Overview

Montana is a land known for soaring vistas, towering peaks, and a rich heritage. The nearly 200 photographs in this collection celebrate the unique history of America’s fourth-largest state. Ride along as photographers document life on the state’s seven Indian reservations. Witness the birth, and sometimes death, of Montana’s rough-and-tumble cities. Drawn from national and regional collections, Historic Photos of Montana offers a window into a vibrant past. Whether taken atop a mountain in Glacier National Park, or on the banks of the Yellowstone River, these photos tell stories that celebrate the people of Big Sky Country. There are images of cowboys and loggers and miners, of course, but also of shopkeepers and schoolchildren, of politicians and housewives and other ordinary citizens who made their home in Montana. Sit back and enjoy the stories these photos tell, stories rich with the majesty, grandeur, and colorful history of the Treasure State.
