A handsome pictorial record of Fergus County, Montana, located in the center of the state. The work was clearly produced to encourage business investment in Fergus County, particularly the railroads. "There is not a county in the United States that compares with it in stability and variety of developed and undeveloped resources, nor offers capital the same opportunities for profitable investment in the fundamental necessities of mankind." The introduction notes that the railroad runs on three sides of the county, but surveys have been made for possible expansion. The text goes on to highlight ranches, farms, residences, town views, mining operations, important citizens, and the other assets and activities of the county. Extensively illustrated. Fewer than ten copies in OCLC.
