 Turner Publishing announces the new release, the Historic Photos of Montana by Gary Glynn.

This 10×10 volume showcases the pictorial narrative of Montana through stunning, culled-from-the-archives photography.

Nashville, TN, January 04, 2009 — The History of Montana Told Through Historic Photographs.

Montana is a land known for soaring vistas, towering peaks, and a rich heritage. The nearly 200 photographs in this collection celebrate the unique history of America’s fourth-largest state. Ride along as photographers document life on the state’s seven Indian reservations. Witness the birth –and sometimes death – of Montana’s rough-and-tumble cities. Drawn from national and regional collections, Historic Photos of Montana offers a window into a vibrant past.

Whether taken atop a mountain in Glacier National Park, or on the banks of the Yellowstone River, these photos tell stories that celebrate the people of Big Sky Country. There are images of cowboys and loggers and miners, of course, but also of shopkeepers and schoolchildren, of politicians and housewives and other ordinary citizens who made their home in Montana. Sit back and enjoy the stories these photos tell, stories rich with the majesty, grandeur, and colorful history of the Treasure State.

“The photos in this collection, many of which have never been printed before, offer a comprehensive view of Montana history from the advent of photography to the mid-twentieth century. Many of the photos offer a fresh perspective on aspects of Montana history that have not been fully explored,” says Glynn.

Historic Photos of Montana is part of Turner Publishing’s Historic Photos series. These books, highlighting the history of the great cities, landmarks, events, and key figures across America, have been acclaimed as a staple in the collection of anyone who loves history.
