America Transformed: The results of the Pacific Railroad Surveys were documented in numerous topographic maps and 12 volumes of reports describing the geography, flora and fauna, and Native peoples. These volumes included numerous illustrations depicting Native people and natural landscapes, such as this view prepared by John Mix Stanley while serving with the Northern Pacific Railroad Survey party. It depicts Montana’s Milk River Valley with a pair of antelope in the foreground.
