When Montana became the 41st state in 1889, an old pioneer lamented, "Now she's gone to hell." But most Montanans embraced statehood as the inevitable culmination of one of the most rapid and dramatic transformations in United States history. 'Montana 1889' tells the many stories of this overwhelming transformation by entering into the lives, emotions, and decisions of diverse peoples cooperating and competing on this contested ground.
