Massive and comprehensive history of Montana Territory expanded from biographical sketches by D.J. Stewart and the Territorial Historical Company, and greatly expanded by the massive corralling of information by M.A. Leeson into this nearly 1400 pp. work. "This volume contains a greater and more varied history than was ever before embodied in a work on the teritories; it was compiled with great care, and the personal sketches were collated and rewritten" Very Good Plus. Item #85324

"...The first part is devoted to the general history of the Territory, and may be said to embrace every name and item connected with the Territory as a whole.This part of the work is based almost entirely on official reports, public records, written statements of travelers and pioneers (founded on daily journals of their travels and experiences) and oral statements of early settlers."

"The second part is devoted to the histories of the counties. This portion of the work is based on records (some of which were exhumed, so to speak, while others were found in well-kept record books) and reminiscences. Commercial, military and political enterprises are detailed, nothing which might be thought worthy of mention is omitted, and thus every name and deed are entwined with the history of the county."
