That there is another heavy passel of reading and a few of them standout for me like The Bassett Women. They lived in a cabin they built next to the Dinosaur Nat'l Monument in Utah and were mixed up in some cattle rustling it was alleged. And there is Commerce of the Prairies, a great freight study, and Lady in Boomtown, about Nevada mining. All interesting reading. And the Rocky Mountain Rendezvous about the fur traders in the early 1800's.
