I remembered seeing just the type of information you
want in a book and I just found it again. Here is the
title and description:

Goddard, Frederick B.
Where to emigrate and why : homes and fortunes in the
boundless West and the sunny South : their climate,
scenery, soil, productions, railroads, mining
interests, and general resources, the cost of farm
lands, how to obtain titles, the Homestead and other
land laws, the rates of wages, &c., &c. : with a
complete history and description of the Pacific
railroad
Philadelphia, Pa.: Peoples Pub. Co., 1869, 635 pgs.

The whole book is available to read and download 50
pages at a time on HeritageQuest. I have
HeritageQuest available through my library and I think
it's pretty popular in many local and/or state
libraries or university libraries in the US as long as
you are a resident. You could probably look at it in
the library or in some cases you can access it from
home with a library card and PIN.

Hope this helps.
