23 pages, NEW condition, from the original 1860 edition of which only 3 copies are known. Wagner-Camp, # 350a " Blue's narrative is perhaps more horrifying to the modern reader than thrilling. He was the survivor of an emigrant party that set out on foot for Pike's Peak from Leavenworth, most of his companions including two brothers died of starvation on the trail, and Blue survived by eating their flesh with their previous consent and even their insistence."
