A Miner's Sunday, 1849.
by Charles B. Gillespie.
This story is set in Coloma, the California gold discovery site of 1848. But it might
have happened at any of the gold-rush sites of the West--Virginia City, Cripple Creek, the
Klondike--and it probably did, but only on Sunday. Town was a lively place the one day the
mines were shut down, with a mix of nationalities engaging in gambling, auctions,
horse-racing, shopping for clothes and supplies, eating, drinking, brawling, and general
tom-foolery as you might expect from a bunch of young men from all over the world who were
off to a get-rich adventure.
Illustrations are from early sources, including the original article of 1891, Frederic Remington and the Crocker Art Museum. 16 pages. See sample pages, illustrations.

by Colonel Henry Inman with "Buffalo Bill" Cody.
America nearly lost its buffalo (or bison, to be more accurate), but in an early
conservation effort a small herd was retained. This has now grown into a sizable
population, which recall to us the vast herds that once roamed and even blackened the
plains. This story, however, is told by one who at one point in his career was actively
engaged in slaughtering the animals. They were a nuisance that got in the way of the new
trains, and, besides, eliminating buffaloes might help in subduing Indians. Life habits of
the animal are given as well, and what better way to learn of the place in our history of
the buffalo than by reading an account by one of the principals in their history.
Reprinted from 1898.
Illustrations are by Frederic Remington and others. 48 pages. See sample pages, illustrations.

Roosevelt National Memorial Park. Foreword is by park naturalist Gerard T. Altoff.
