'While great pains have been taken to establish historical authenticity, the author's chief goal has been to recreate the flavor and the atmosphere of newspapering on the frontier. …This story covers not only the first bold plunges into 'Indian country' and the vast unsettled expanse west of the Mississippi, but it includes, too, the development which occurred once the wilderness had been conquered. That way this report is able to cover the growth of newspapers from the hand-set, hand-fed chronicles of a romantic era to still a new frontier: the age of mechanization.' stock#26933.
