Gift inscription on front flyleaf. Dusty looking copy, still much better condition than usually found. Tight clean and little browning of the paper. Early novel about a wagon train's journey West. Wright III, 4351.A fictional account of life in the West. C.C. Post also wrote the immensely popular "Ten Years a Cowboy". This, his first work, concerns itself with the evils of land-grant grabbing. "To the workers, the men and women who have given America her greatness- (who) have wandered from sea to sea in search of 'that better country' with tales of which cunning purloiners of their houses have stifled their longings for juster laws.". .Post, author of the second recognized cowboy autobiography, here concerns himself with overland travel on the plains, transposed into fiction. He appends the Huntington-Colton correspondence, as well as testimonials which assert that this work will match UNCLE TOM'S CABIN in fame and influence. But the earth abideth forever.

There is a money slot in the door for night sales, which go to support National Public Radio. Inside, which can be too crowded at times, are surprisingly good books, only 1% are ever listed on-line. We also sell records, music cd's, comic books, mags, computer software and games. Best of all is the found art decorating every spare spot. The motto on the front door: NO SHOOTING, NO SMOKING, NO MOONING THE MANAGEMENT.
