THE WESTERN AVERNUS OR TOIL AND TRAVEL IN FURTHER NORTH AMERICA.
London: Smith, Elder, & Co., 1887. 307pp. Folding map. Advertisements. First edition. Externally, wear to the spine ends and corners, overall good. Internally, the front hinge is cracked, else very good. The author was a sheep herder around Colorado City, Texas and then did a stint as a “bull-puncher” on the train from Texas to Chicago. Then his trip turned north to Minnesota, then Manitoba and the Canadian Rockies and on to Oregon and finally San Francisco where his odyssey ends. Adams, Herd 1919: “Scarce.” Graff 3520.
