A quote from the dust jacket. …it was not the settlers who had opened up this land, but fur traders, fierce bands of half-breeds, missionaries, gun-toting miners, mounted police, revolutionaries and railroad builders--some legendary, and many more than a little unsavory." This is Douglas Hills account of the west.
