136 pages, illustrations. New introduction by James Mitchell Clarke. Six-Guns 1478. "The first edition of this book is one of the rarities of western Americana. Immediately after printed, the Wyoming cattlemen objected and sued. The court ordered it destroyed. While the books were in the court's custody, a number were stolen and smuggled to Denver and later bound. For many years, the Wyoming Stockgrowers' Association, their sympathizers, and their descendants destroyed every copy they came across. The author's print shop was burned, and he was ordered to leave Wyoming." Herd 1474, Graff 2750. Howes M522, Six-Score 79
