Publication: Potomac Corral, The Westerners, 1969, Washington

First Edition. #112 of 250 numbered and signed copies. ii-iv, 28pp. Frontispiece. Illustrations. Map. The Arkansas River is the longest tributary of the Missouri-Mississippi system. It starts as a mountain brook in an alpine valley in Colorado over 10,000 feet above sea level and flows eastward into Kansas, Oklahoma, and into Arkansas where it empties into the Mississippi River. This is the story of events of history that have occurred along its shores as the West developed. An excellent overview of the history of this important, but often overlooked river of the West. A fine copy.
