The state of North Dakota has both grain farms and cattle ranches. The state borders with South Dakota to the south, Montana to the west, and the Canadian provinces of Saskatchewan and Manitoba to the north.

The first white explorer in this area was Pierre Gaultier de Varennes, who was a French-Canadian soldier and fur trader. North Dakota joined the Union as the 39th state.
