Book Description ReInk Books, 2017. Softcover. Condition: NEW. Reprinted from 1928 edition. 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.

Book Description The Arthur H. Clark Co, Cleveland, OH, 1928. First Edition. Octavo. 299pp. Folding map. Text. Index. The far west was the vast country west of the Mississippi river, mostly unexplored with the exception of fur trappers. Travel was by horse or wagon. A horse would travel only three miles a day and survived on prairie grass. A very slow pace to travel. One could travel for weeks or months without seeing people or signs of civilized occupation. Mostly hostile Indians or animals would cross their paths. One of the most useful steps in developing the west was the work by the Pawnee Scouts who knew the land and how to survive the long distances traveled. Bound in red cloth, spine lettering and top edge gilt. A very handsome near fine copy. From the library of Barry Goldwater with his bookplate. Seller Inventory # 025634
