Published by the Montana Historical Society since 1951, Montana The Magazine of Western History contains articles that showcase the people, places, and events that shaped the state and the western region.
Four issues a year keep readers current on issues, controversies, and new discoveries involving the history and future of Montana and the West. Each issue is lavishly illustrated with historical maps, drawings, and photographs -- some from the Society's own archives, others from any number of public and private sources. The larger 7-7/8" x 10-3/4" size, along with full-color art on the cover and occasionally inside, sets the magazine apart from most of its genre.
In addition to the fascinating articles, the magazine features book and movie reviews, commentaries, Montana episodes, and a limited amount of advertising confined to rare and new books, art objects, and other products and events appealing to our readers' interests in American -- especially western -- history.
The Montana Historical Society Press publishes readable and provocative books for students and adults focusing on the history and cultural resources of Montana. Its books are designed to connect Montana's social, political and cultural developments, and offer Native American perspective on Montana's history.
With more than fifty titles in print, the MHS Press has reached a broad audience and earned a reputation as one of the most respected publishers of western history in the high plains and northern Rockies.
