  • Stewart, Edgar I., editor.
    PENNY-AN-ACRE EMPIRE IN THE WEST.

    Edition: First printing.

    Norman, OK: University of Oklahoma Press, (1968.) dj. Hardcover first edition - An excellent overview of the 1870's debate on the worth or worthlessness of the western lands, especially those proposed to be crossed by the Northern Pacific Railroad. Covers Custer's expedition into the Black Hills in 1873. In the 1870's a glowing report was written about the worth of the land, especially those proposed to be tranversed by the Northern Pacific. A letter of contradiction was written by General William B. Hazen with a retort that the land wasn't "worth a penny an acre." With this as the starting point, the author has brought together various documents (including the Hazen pamphlet, the Haas report of 1871), setting forth the arguments on both sides. Includes fold-out map. Index. ix, 268 pp.

    Condition: Very near fine in a very good- dustjacket (one closed tear to dj, minor edgewear.)
