430pp. Quarto [28.5 cm] Olive green cloth over boards with gilt stamped title on the spine and front cover. Pictorial endpapers by Gloria Clay. Near fine. There are a couple of small dings in the edges of the covers. The dust jacket is in very good condition, with sunning to the jacket's spine, obscuring the title, and a short closed tear in the top edge.
Illustrated with facsimiles and over 190 photographs. A history of the State of Wyoming, as well as a history of territorial Wyoming, and of the rugged frontier of pre-territorial days. From the dust jacket- "The men, who in 1873, founded the Wyoming Stock Growers Association, and nurtured it during the first uncertain decades of its existence, were the same men who carved the Territory of Wyoming out of the wilderness, and officiated at the birth of the State."
