by Lawrence M. Woods

Publication: The Free Press, 1989, New York

First edition. Cloth, vii [3], 245p. Author's first book. Acknowledgements, introduction, appendix, notes, bibliography, index. One Russell illustrations. In the last quarter of the 19th century an enterprising group of British gentlemen saw and seized a unique opportunity to graze huge herds of cattle, free of charge, on public lands in the then unsettled American West. Excellent book which discusses the investments and the degree of involvement of the British entrepreneurs. The section on "Notes" is highly informative, and the "Bibliography" is extensive. Fine in dust jacket.
