Montana Guidebooks

With the explosion in the vast amount of travel books today, it is probably no surprise that many now cover Montana in one fashion or another. Whether you need, or want, a guidebook is a matter of personal preference

However, keep in mind that Montana IS a big state - and has lots of hidden little gems in unlikely places. And even the more popular places, such as Glacier National Park, have many attractions few visitors ever see.

Thus, if you don't want to miss something of special importance, it is not a bad idea to invest in a guidebook or two. Also, books specifically about Glacier Park and Yellowstone Park are located in seperate sections.

Note, if you plan on venturing off the main highways, whether to simply explore or do some remote camping, the Montana Atlas & Gazetteer is an absolute must.
