Publication: Press of the Appeal To Reason, n d 1915, Girard
First edition. 8vo. Original green cloth, 326 pp., preface, illustrated, portraits. A very scarce narrative, this interesting work gives much first-hand information about cowboy life on the Plains, as well as accounts of several clashes between the Indians and the Army, or early plainsmen. Seven full-page plates including a sketch by the author, and photos of Gen. H. M. Creel, Ben Clark (Gen. P. H. Sheridan's Chief of Scouts) Chief Dull Knife, Chief Starving Elk, and other Native Americans."Nearly half of this very scarce book deals autobiographically with frontier range life. Realistic, strong, written from the perspective of a man who 'wanted something to read' in camp."---J. Frank Dobie. Light wear to the foot of spine and corners, else a very good, internally clean and bright copy, housed in a custom made slipcase.
