Montana: A History Of Two Centuries first appeared in 1976 and immediately became the standard work in its field. Fully twenty percent of the text is new or revised, incorporating the results of new research and new interpretations dealing with pre-history, Native American studies, oral history, and recent political history. In addition, the bibliography has been updated and greatly expanded, new maps have been drawn, and new photographs have been selected.
**** The first edition of 1976 (endorsed by BCL3) quickly attained the status of `standard work'. Some 20% of the material here is new, as is co-author William L. Lang. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
