Product Description:
Reviewers hailed the original edition of T.A. Larson’s History of Wyoming (Winner of an Award of Merit of the American Association for State and Local History) as “a refreshing new look at the most western of the Western States,” “an excellent model of what a state history should be.” In that first comprehensive, critical history of Wyoming, the author was not concerned to recapitulate the familiar tales of fast guns and renegades associated with the pre-territorial years; his focus was on the men, women, and events which have shaped the state’s history since 18965, when the name Wyoming was first applied to the area.

Although dramatic incidents and changes occurred in Wyoming from time to time during its territorial and statehood years into the 1960’s, the state remained preeminently a cattlemen’s domain and tourist mecca. Then the world energy crisis greatly enhanced the value of these state’s vast reserves of oil, gas, uranium, and coal. Unprecedented growth resulted (the state was losing population in 1965, when the first edition of this book was published), bringing expanded payrolls and wealth on the one hand and serious problems on the other as developers and environmentalists competed for control of Wyoming’s future.

Incorporating new chapters on the state’s abrupt turnaround from “the lonesome land” to an important national center of energy development, this edition continues to emphasize political, economic, and social history and to offer new interpretations and information. Examining the great changes of the 1970’s, Larson concludes that trade-offs and compromises are inevitable, major decisions lie ahead, and it’s an exciting and challenging era for Wyoming citizens.

  • On This Day in Wyoming History
Product Description:
Wyoming might be known as the least populous state, but this land of mountains and prairies is home to enough history to provide an entertaining footnote for each day of the year. On September 6, 1870, Wyoming was the first state to give women the right to vote, and on March 1, 1872, Yellowstone became the world's first National Park. JCPenney opened its doors in Kemmerer on April 14, 1902, while May 1, 1883, marks Buffalo Bill Cody's very first Wild West Show. Join Pat Holscher on a day-by-day look at some of the Equality State's most fascinating factoids.

Product Description:
Wyoming attorney John W. Davis retells the story of the West’s most notorious range war. Having delved more deeply than previous writers into land and census records, newspapers, and trial transcripts, Davis has produced an all-new interpretation. He looks at the conflict from the perspective of Johnson County residents—those whose home territory was invaded and many of whom the invaders targeted for murder—and finds that, contrary to the received explanation, these people were not thieves and rustlers but legitimate citizens.

The broad outlines of the conflict are familiar: some of Wyoming’s biggest cattlemen, under the guise of eliminating livestock rustling on the open range, hire two-dozen Texas cowboys and, with range detectives and prominent members of the Wyoming Stock Growers Association, “invade” north-central Wyoming to clean out rustlers and other undesirables. While the invaders kill two suspected rustlers, citizens mobilize and eventually turn the tables, surrounding the intruders at a ranch where they intend to capture them by force. An appeal for help convinces President Benjamin Harrison to call out the army from nearby Fort McKinley, and after an all-night ride the soldiers arrive just in time to stave off the invaders’ annihilation. Though taken prisoner, they later avoid prosecution.

The cattle barons’ powers of persuasion in justifying their deeds have colored accounts of the war for more than a century. Wyoming Range War tells a compelling story that redraws the lines between heroes and villains.

  • Wind River Adventures My Life in Frontier Wyoming
Product Description:
Ed Farlow seems to have been present at every important historic event in the West. If he wasn t, he knew someone who was.

In this historic memoir Ed Farlow recalls a life like no other starting with his arrival as a teenager in Wyoming in the 1870s. It begins with Farlow and a friend hopping a freight train for Laramie, Wyoming, and continues until 1931 when he was adopted into the Arapaho Nation by the Indians who had become his friends.

His remarkable rapport with the Indians who were his neighbors on the Wind River Reservation led to his acting as a theatrical agent for the tribes for their appearances in exhibitions and early motion pictures. He traveled with them to far away places including Paris, London, and Hollywood.

He recounts versions of famous events the Custer Battle, a buffalo hunt with Indians, the Wilcox train robbery, the Battle of Crowheart Butte, a wolf roundup. And he recalls famous people Sacajawea, the Hole-in-the Wall gang, Colonel Tim McCoy, Joan Crawford, Chief Washakie, Cattle Kate, and more.

Wind River Adventures is the first publication of the memoirs of Edward J. Farlow. He wrote these accounts in the late 1930s and early 1940s when he was between seventy-five and eighty-five years old. He lived to be ninety and was active and vigorous until near the end of his life. And what a life it was! It has been said that Ed Farlow was there when the West was born.

Diary of a 1908 Wagon Journey to Yellowstone: And Life in Rural Wyoming

Product Description:
This diary was written in two equally important and interesting parts. The diarist is Charles Hoff, a veteran of the American Civil War who is in his mid-60s at the time of the diary.

Part 1: Life in Rural Wyoming in the Summer of 1907

The first part of this diary takes place in 1907 and details the diarist’s life near Boulder, Wyoming. It is a largely rural area and the diarist’s activities reflect that. The diarist shares plenty of opinions on the sometimes strange happening in the town, as well as describing his daily life and activities.

There is some modern excitement to be had. On July 29, the first automobile ever to show up in town arrives. Then, on August 9, another. On August 11, our diarist writes “Another automobile came in today. Getting to be a common thing.” Soon after: “He took the citizens of the place for a ride, four at a time. I was included. It was a grand day for the people.” 

Part 2: Wagon Journey to Yellowstone National Park in the Summer of 1908

In the second part of the diary, the diarist embarks on a wagon journey to Yellowstone National Park with some friends. On the way, they see amazing animals and scenery and natural phenomena, have a few crazy experiences, meet a cowboy, and deal with the logistical problems of a road trip. The diarist tells us all about road food. Who knew you can cook gooseberries and black currants on the road?

Upon arriving in Yellowstone, it is quickly apparent that a tour of 1908 Yellowstone was different than it is today. On the way in, they had to register with the soldiers and get their guns plugged so they couldn’t hunt (and get their guns unplugged by soldiers on the way out).

The diarist vividly documents the extensive tour of Yellowstone Park. You can look at a Yellowstone map from today while reading this diary and follow their progress. He mentions every river, every place of note, and every attraction - giving detailed accounts of the entire adventurous tour.

Product Description:
Wyoming is so closely identified with ranching that it is often known as “the Cowboy State.” The prosperity associated with the cattle industry drew wealthy investors to Wyoming Territory in the 1870s and early 1880s. They stocked the range with thousands of cows and made considerable fortunes until the harsh winter of 1886–1887, when the cattle market collapsed. Many of those early ranchers left Wyoming, which opened the door for the establishment of what would become a huge sheep business. During the 1890s and the early decades of the 20th century, the various Homestead Acts drew others to Wyoming in search of a brighter future. As most of Wyoming’s land was suited for grazing, not farming, smaller ranches began to play a more important role in the state’s growth. Wyoming’s Historic Ranches provides a rare glimpse of the cattle baron ranches as well as the more modest operations that are tucked away along remote valleys and streams, not visible to the average visitor or resident of the state.

Product Description:

For centuries Wyoming was a land no one wanted--high, dry, and remote--more often a thoroughfare on the way to some place else than a final destination. Many of the sweeping developments that overtook the rest of the nation simply passed it by, leaving Wyoming to sit in lonely grandeur behind its granite walls and silent snows. The problem, explains T.A. Larson in this history, was people--and how to get them there.

The settlers who came to Wyoming stayed to build a special way of life. It is with them that important choices now rest. "The country where the wind blew in primeval purity will now breathe new odors," says author Larson, unless short-term profits can be balanced by long-term gains. If the right decisions are made, he concludes, it should be possible for Wyoming to "emerge from its primitive isolation in such a way that its greatest values are preserved and its old way of life left for those who choose to follow it."
