Publication: The Caxton Printers, Ltd, 1926, Caldwell

First edition. 8vo. Boards, titles stamped in gilt on the front cover and spine, green decorated endpapers, 227 pp., frontispiece, preface, illustrated from photographs, biographies. Nice early history of the southeastern section of Idaho. Includes material on the Mormon colonies around Teton Creek, outlaws in the region, cattle razing and the cattle industry, and much on the fur trade and mountain men - which was very active in the middle part (and earlier) of the nineteenth century. Illustrated with black and white photographs. "Idaho, rich in historical lore, perhaps offers no finer material for the historian's pen than can be found in the southeastern section of the state. The history of the Teton Basin, written by a pioneer resident of that rich and beautiful Valley, will add a valuable chapter to Idaho history. It is a story gleaned from early settlers, still living, but who will soon pass on. Containing facts of the first trail-blazers, early trappers, the discovery of Teton Pass, thrilling battles between trappers and Indians, this history will be found of extreme interest to every section of Idaho." --- Book's promotional blurb. Former owner's bookplate on front pastedown sheet, light wear to head of spine, small old ink spot to bottom of front cover, else a very good, tight copy.
