Very Good with no dust jacket. Xii, 171 pages, well illustrated, cloth, 8 by 11 inches, very good. From the preface: "While writing The Northwest Gun, I began to realize how little was actually known about the rifles used during the same fur trade period. As a result a chapter on Indian Rifles was included in The Northwest Gun to give a brief outline of the rifles actually made for sale by trading posts in the Indian country. Later, museum research on the equipment of the early trappers and Mountain Men added more material on rifles and encouraged the writer to undertake an exhaustive study of plainsmen's rifles."
