Description

A Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing, in the Publisher's original wrappers, with some loss to the spine tail and some bends to the wrappers, and a prior owner's name and address sticker to the front wrapper's verso. "W. H. Ryus was better known as "the Second William Penn" by passengers and old settlers along the line of the Old Santa Fe Trail because of his rare and exceptional knowledge of Indian traits and characteristics and his ability to trade and treat with them so tactfully. Ryus was one of the boy drivers of the a stage company with U.S. Mail contracts, regularly running along the Santa Fe Trail. During this time, he routinely crossed the plains at a time when the West was still looked upon as "wild and wooly," and in reality, was fraught with numerous, and oftentimes, murderous dangers." [Quote from Legends of America.com." A Very Good copy.
