Montana (Portraits of the States) by Jonatha A. Brown

This exciting new series gives young readers their first in-depth look at the United States. Each volume provides a colorful, comprehensive portrait of a state's history, people, land, economy, and government. Readers will enjoy the "Fun Facts" sprinkled throughout each book and learn even more about state facts, symbols, and famous people. A chapter on "Things to See and Do" explores each state's unique places and activities. Each title includes a time line, biographies of notable people, informative maps and charts, a glossary, recommended books and Web sites, and an index.

Known for its wide-open spaces, "Big Sky Country" offers a wealth of natural resources, abundant animal life, and breathtaking scenery to residents and visitors alike. Early French explorers helped spread the word of Montana's riches two centuries ago. Trappers, traders, and mineral prospectors soon followed, and lawlessness ruled until Congress established the Montana Territory in 1864. With statehood twenty-five years later came more settlement and a better appreciation for the environment. Although fewer than one million people now live in the forty-first state, those who call it home enjoy its rugged, yet refined, lifestyle.
