This mountainous region was visited only at the beginning of the nineteenth and century trappers in search of animals on the skin. Then it was populated by Indians, of which the Pierced Noses, the Shoshones and the hanging Ear (see Amerindian).

The Idaho economy rests on mining, agriculture, forestry and its industrial derivatives. The state is the first national producer of money. The other mineral resources are antimony, molybdenum, uranium, phosphates, lead, gold and zinc.

Explored for the first time in 1805 by Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, during the Lewis and Clark expedition (1804-1806), Idaho has long remained a wilderness traveled by Canadian and American trappers. American trade began to develop in Idaho after the construction of Fort Hall, near Pocatello, in 1834. Long disputed between the United States and Britain, the Idaho region passed under the American jurisdiction upon exiting the treaty Anglo-American of 1846, that fixed the definitive border with Canada on the 49e parallel. The first permanent establishment was founded only in 1860, Mormons, Franklin. The region experienced a real development only with the discovery of the gold deposits (1860-1862). This caused a great wave of immigration.

Constituted in 1863, Idaho experienced rapid economic and demographic expansion during the 1870s and 1880s, with the development of cattle raising, the arrival of the transcontinental railroad and the discovery of new mining deposits. Despite strong resistance, the Indians, fought with obstinacy, were largely exterminated, and the survivors confined in reserves. Idaho integrated to join the Union on July 3rd 1890, as the forty-third American State. During the twentieth century, the region witnessed an important development of its commercial forestry and wood industries. Irrigation programs have transformed vast desert areas into arable land and, thanks to the attraction of its mountains, Idaho has been experiencing rapid tourism development since the 1970s.
