Idaho, a mountain state in the northwest
US border with British Columbia, Canada; 216,000 km2,
1.58 million residents (2011), the capital is Boise (205,700
residents; 2010). Enlisted in the Union in 1890 as the 43rd
State. Nickname: The Gem State.
With less than five calls per km2 and a rural
population of 43%, Idaho is one of the United States' thinnest and
least urbanized states. Cities and rural populations are
concentrated along the Snake River in the south and to a lesser
extent along the border with the state of Washington to NV. The rest
of Idaho consists of forests and nature reserves in the desolate and
hard-to-reach mountain areas of the Rocky Mountains. Highest point
is Borah Peak (3859 m).

Idaho was from the late 1800s. among the leading manufacturers of
i.a. gold and silver, but the importance of mining has
diminished. Far more important is forestry and especially
agriculture, if approx. 23,000 family farms employ 18% of the
population (1991). Most farming is on the semi-arid plains of
the Snake River, where Mormons introduced irrigation and began
cultivation in the 1880s. Main crops are potatoes, of which the
state has the largest production in the United States, followed by
wheat, beet and fodder for meat and dairy cattle. The industrial
sector was seriously developed in the 1940s and is dominated by the
timber and food industries, in addition to the cheap electricity
from the hydroelectric power plant at Arrowrock Dam. has drawn a
number of electronics companies to Boise. In addition, the tourism
industry is of great and growing importance; partly because of
sights such as the Craters of the Moon National Monument, an extinct
volcanic area west of Idaho Falls, and Hell's Canyon, a
2,300-foot-deep canyon along the Oregon border, and partly because
of the mountain landscape's magnificent scenery and recreational
opportunities. The best known holiday centers include Coeur d'Alene
and Sandpoint to the north (camping, hunting, fishing) and the Sun
Valley in the southern Sawtooth Mountains with year-round
skiing. The climate varies with altitude, but is mostly temperate
and continental with a mean rainfall of approx. 500 mm in the north
and 300 mm in the south. A total of 62% of the land is owned by the
Federal Government, mostly in the form of national forests, military
areas and Native American reserves.
The United States acquired the area as part of the Louisiana
Purchase in 1803, but it was first explored in 1805 by the Lewis and
Clark expeditions. Later, furry hunters and missionaries followed the
Oregon Trail. However, a larger immigration only took off after
the gold find in 1860; Idaho territory was removed from Oregon in
1863 and then encompassed all of Montana and most of Wyoming. The
present boundaries were set in 1868. In 1884, large silver finds
were made at the Coeur d'Alene, which, after drastic falls in silver
prices, became the scene of fierce labor struggles in the 1890s. The
area's original inhabitants, including the nez percÚ Indians
under Chief Joseph, were displaced in 1877; some thousands of
descendants now live in the northern part of the state.
