Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Reprint of part one of a two-part study that draws on primary sources such as correspondence and diaries, newspaper accounts, government reports, and patent materials in order to trace the development and uses of firearms on the frontier during the period between 1803 and 1865. Covers the refinements, adaptations, and uses of weapons by civilians, the military, Indians, and explorers and trappers, thus adding an important new dimension to our understanding of the pivotal events in the settlement of the region and of the individuals who took part in them. Numerous b&w photographs and illustrations, some of them rare, accompany the text. Oversize: (9.25 x 12.25<">). Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
