North America: 1895 - Crookston to Great Falls

Mark is the very first guest at the Crookston Hotel, in Minnesota. He gives a show there then boards the Great Northern Railway train for Great Falls, Montana. He travels through the wheat fields of North Dakota then the high plains. The route follows the Missouri River from Williston to Fort Buford, then through the Glasgow region of Montana past Fort Assinaboine to Fort Benton, then into Great Falls. We sample bits of the history of the railway and of the native peoples displaced by it.
