377; 419pp. Octavo [23.5 cm] Blue cloth with a gilt stamped title on the backstrip, and single blind ruled borders on the covers. Frontispiece illustrations by Charles M. Russell and Edgar S. Paxson. Very good. There are a couple of former price notations on the front free endsheets. The text block of volume 1 is beginning to crack here and there, however the text block is still quite sturdy. With 4 fold-out maps.
With 200 illustrations. A work fueled by Olin D. Wheeler's personal exploration of the trail, and a work rich in illustrations, including portraits, and photographs of important artifacts, manuscript documents, and actual journal pages.
