Montana Counties

Montana is bounded by British America on the north, Dakota on the east. Wyoming and Idaho on the south and Idaho on the west. It is nearly rectangular in shape, embraces an area of about 144,000 square miles, and is about three times as large as the State of Kew York. The name is pretty, suggestive and not inappropriate, as for a great distance its western boundary is the axis of the Coeur d'Alene or Pointed Heart range, a white line on the zig-zag of the mountains' crest, in the regions of perpetual snow. Farther eastward *the main range of the rocky Mountains, rising in colossal grandeur, tends diagonally to the northwest across the Territory, while between these two distinct ranges, and far eastward from the latter, the country is diversified by a system of subordinate, transverse and parallel ranges, enclosing the most beautiful valleys.
