Near Fine in Very Good Dustjacket. Octavo, about 9.5 inches tall, in turquoise cloth stamped in gilt. 459 pages plus 7 pages of publisher ads. Map endpapers, illustrated title page. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR ON THE HALF TITLE with a personal inscription dated in 1961. The author's personal survey of the way west in the 19th century. The book is clean, bright and sound but with very light extremity wear. The jacket is complete but there are a pair of very short tears bracketing the head of the spine, general rubbing and mild edge wear.
This is the best book I have ever found on the western migration to the states of Colorado, Utah, Nevada, and California. It addresses the people that made the history rather then the history. A really great read.
