The highest peak, Granite Peak in the Absaroka Range, reaches 3,901 m above sea level. The eastern two-thirds of the state consists of a rolling prairie landscape, which descends from about 1,200 m above sea level. at the foot of the Rocky Mountains to 600 m asl. furthest to the east. The state runs through the Missouri River and the Yellowstone River, which at the state border in the Northeast unite with each other.

Montana was colonized in the late 1800s by immigrants from mainly western and northern Europe, among them many Scandinavians. It is one of the least populated states in the United States and has low population growth. Of the residents, 7 percent are Native Americans, the majority of whom live in a reserve. Montana has a lower proportion of blacks (0.6 percent) than any other state. Montana has only smaller cities, and the majority have emerged from mining camps, trade centers, and station communities. The largest cities are Billings (110,300 residents, 2016), Missoula (71,000) and Great Falls (59,600). See towns in Montana.
Agriculture, forestry and mining are the basis of Montana’s business. Agriculture is mainly conducted on large farms, and 20 percent of the cultivated area is irrigated. Wheat and feed grain are the most important crops, and livestock management plays a big role. The forests of western Montana provide the basis for a significant timber industry.
Montana’s metallurgical industry is based on the area’s rich mineral resources; now, however, mining has decreased in importance. Oil and natural gas extraction is important and coal resources are very large. Hydropower resources are also significant.
Fine winter sports and ghost towns from the new-build era (such as Virginia City), Glacier National Park and the proximity to Yellowstone National Park draw many visitors to Montana, and tourism is an increasingly important source of income.
Tourism and gastronomy
Tourism is of great importance to the state. The mountainous western part of Montana offers wilderness areas and scenery, for example within the large Glacier National Park on the border with Canada. A small part of Yellowstone National Park is located within Montana, which affects tourist flows. In addition to nature experiences and outdoor activities, Montana offers historically interesting sights. In the area, several battles were fought during the attempts by the white conquerors to expel the country’s Indians. Well-visited memorial sites are Big Hole Battlefield in the southwest and Custer Battlefield (Little Bighorn) about 100 km from Billings.

There are also homemade sourdough bread, walnut bread and fruit pies. The breakfast does not often consist of minced meat with mushrooms and tomato, served on bread. Avocado is a common feature of the diet.
Eastern Montana became part of the United States through the Louisiana Purchase in 1803, west through the Oregon Treaty with Great Britain in 1846. Montana became territory in 1864 and the state in 1889. Fur trading was followed in the 1860s by silver and copper mining as important industries and during the 1900s by agriculture and livestock farming. During the 1870s, the Indians here made one last attempt to defend their territories, i.a. through the victory of Little Bighorn in 1876.
