Frontier Editor.

by Daniel W. Whetstone

Publication: Hastings House Publishers, 1956, New York

First edition. 8vo. Cloth, viii, 287 pp., preface, illustrated, maps. The author was the editor since 1909 of a small town newspaper in Cut Bank, Montana, and he reports about the great cattle ranches that eventually were split up into farms and the town's only steady employer, the railroad shops, also moved away. He reports that times were hard for a time until oil was discovered and nearly turned the little town into a booming metropolis. Herd 2501 says "A story of Cut Bank, Montana," Former owner's inked name on the front pastedown sheet (completely covered by the front flap fold), else a fine, unread copy in a lightly rubbed dust jacket. Really an entertaining read.
