From the narratives of early explorers and ranchers, Native Americans, and settler women through the works of such major twentieth-century luminaries as A.B. Guthrie and Ivan Doig, Egan traces the evolution of Montanans' early fantastic dreams of economic, religious, and cultural success into failure and despair, violence and tragedy. Yet, side by side with these tales of woe are tales of endurance and even triumph, evidence of the strength and creative potential of the state's people."--Jacket." ;
