About this Item

Octavo. The author takes information from the early mountain men and engineers who described the West in a highly colorful and romanticized way which he then analyzed and evaluated. This he achieved by recording for the first time a completely detailed account of their Western activities, with particular emphasis on those years between 1838 and 1863 and included five maps taken from the originals of the early explorers to enhance the readers journey. 509pp., bound in blue paper covered boards backed in dark blue cloth, spine lettering gilt. Near fine in clipped pictorial dust jacket with a couple of small rub spots. A very good copy. Bookseller Inventory # 019423
