Local History Books on Montana

When it comes to the most beautiful states in the U.S., it goes pretty much without saying that Montana is on everyone’s list (or should be). It’s home to the largest migratory elk herd in the entire country, as well as a multitude of loons, antelope, bison, and more. A whopping 46 of its 56 counties are considered frontier counties, as they have an average population of six or fewer people per square mile. Montana is also home to Yellowstone National Park – the very first national park in America.

However, there’s a lot more to Montana than facts and figures. Let regional interest literature written by passionate local historians teach you about America’s aptly named Treasure State.
