Book Description ReInk Books, 2018. Softcover. Condition: NEW. Reprinted from edition. Language: eng. NO changes have been made to the original text. This is NOT a retyped or an ocr'd reprint. Illustrations, Index, if any, are included in black and white. Each page is checked manually before printing. As this reprint is from very old book, there could be some missing or flawed pages, but we always try to make the book as complete as possible. Fold-outs, if any, are not part of the book. If the original book was published in multiple volumes then this reprint is of only one volume, not the whole set. This paperback book is SEWN, where the book block is actually sewn (smythe sewn/section sewn) with thread before binding which results in a more durable type of paperback binding. It can also be open wide. The pages will not fall out and will be around for a lot longer than normal paperbacks. This print on demand book is printed on high quality acid-free paper. Original Publisher: Boston : The Roxburgh publishing co., inc. 154 pages. Seller Inventory # 457974535

Book Description The Roxburgh Publishing Co., Inc., Boston, 1923. First edition. Small 8vo. 142pp. Original navy blue cloth stamped in gilt on spine and front cover. Spine slightly dulled, light wear to spine ends, light damp stain to extreme bottom of text block. A very good copy. The author covers his experiences in California as a prospector, gold miner, homesteader, stock raiser and roadside "smithy." After an unsuccessful stint as a placer miner, the author practiced blacksmithing near the Madera County town of Ahwahnee and prospered by servicing the wagons carrying tourists to and from Yosemite. His narrative is plain and unvarnished but includes plenty of stage robberies, pyromaniacs, shootings, and random violence. One chapter describes the first auto-stage holdup. "Rare" (Six-Guns). [Adams, Herd: 2045; Adams, Six-Guns: 1987; Cowan: p.581; Rocq: 4933]. Seller Inventory # 7471
