By Charles G. Anderson. In 1870, 19 year old J.Wright Mooar left his Vermont home and ventured "out West." He was first a woodcutter at Ft. Hays, then formed a buffalo hunting company, the first to hunt the big shaggies for their hides, establishing an economy in central Kansas and later in the Texas Panhandle and West Texas that would become a major facet of America's Manifest Destiny, the extermination of the great bison. A revised and updated version of Anderson's earlier biography of Mooar, it includes two Appendices. Profusely illustrated and includes end notes, index and bibliography. Soft cover, 6" x 9", 144 pages.
