PHILIP STEELE OF THE ROYAL NORTHWEST MOUNTED POLICE

By James Oliver Curwood

New York 1911

Chapter I. The Hyacinth Letter

Philip Steele's pencil drove steadily over the paper, as if the mere writing of a letter he might never mail in some way lessened the loneliness.

Blazed Trail Stories and Stories Of The Wild Life –by: Stewart Edward White

Thirteen short stories by a popular writer of the early 20th century (not to be confused with an earlier book Blazed Trail).

Based on his own experience, whether writing camping journals or Westerns, he included pithy and fun details about cabin-building, canoeing, logging, gold-hunting, and guns and fishing and hunting. He also interviewed people who had been involved in the fur trade, the Cali...

THE OUTLET

by Andy Adams

PREFACE

At the close of the civil war the need for a market for the surplus cattle of Texas was as urgent as it was general. There had been numerous experiments in seeking an outlet, and there is authority for the statement that in 1857 Texas cattle were driven to Illinois. Eleven years ...
