As a bedside or browsing-room bit of Americana, this rich store house of lore, legend and anecdote is beguiling reading. From the days of the first wagon train to the bargainings between the Osage and the Texas oilmen, the anecdotes display a wealth of historical event. A really representative anthology -- expansive, diverse, and lively. By the editor of A Freasury of American Folkiore. A Treasury of New England Folkiore, and A Treasury of Southern Folkiore.
