  • Have you ever thought about all the things that might have happened in a place before you arrived?
    Montana’s been around for a long time, and it has all sorts of interesting tales to tell. There are stories about the first peoples and how horses came to the region, stories about bison and vigilantes and how Lewis and Clark explored the Missouri and Yellowstone rivers. There are some really good yarns about mountain men and gold miners striking it rich, and even some stories about copper kings and railroad barons.
    With 24 delightful illustrations created by the author, Montana for Kids puts all these stories together in one fascinating package. No matter how old you are, it’s the perfect introduction to the Treasure State.
