Today Boise is on the verge of being among the 100 most populous cities in America, the largest metropolitan area between Salt Lake City and Portland and the third most peopled region in the Pacific Northwest. All impressive statistics for a town, despite being the state capital, that entered the 20th century with scarcely 5,000 people and no rail service that left it isolated and accessible only on rutted wagon roads.
