Behold the Shining Mountains, by Gary Wiles and Delores M. Brown


$14.95


A rollicking mix of frontier history and true stories, beginning with the letter that William Sublette and his partners sent to Secretary of War Eaton about their wagons crossing the Great American desert from Missouri to the Rockies, saying that wagons can reach the fertile West. This shocking letter's read to the U.S. Senate; reprints hit the nation's newspapers, firing imaginations from religious zealots seeking savages to save to farmers lusting for virgin soil. The letter unleashes the American dream of owning your own land upon hordes of city people. -- from the Prologue.


For all it's accurate diary quotes, maps, bibilography and index, this is still "a three hanky book with a dozen belly laughs -- a captivating tornado roaring across land that was or became 36 states."
