Fifteen Thousand Miles by Stage: A Woman's Unique Experience during Thirty Years of Path Finding and Pioneering from the Missouri to the Pacific and from Alaska to Mexico
New York: G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1911. Hardcover. Small 4to. Green cloth with gilt lettering and gilt-bordered front board plate. xxv, 673pp. Top edge gilt. Tissue-guarded frontispiece, extensive illustrations, 4 full-page captioned tissue-guarded color plates, brown pictorial endpapers. Very good. Almost rates "Near fine," with just the faintest edgewear at corners only. A wonderfully tight and bright and just plain lovely first edition of this renowned travelogue. Call her "queen of the pioneers," call her "mother of the West," this female American explorer (1854-1925) fearlessly and relentlessly toured the West -- Rocky Mountains, Yellowstone Park -- at a time when proper Victorian women didn't do that -- and she recounts it all in this scarce, vivid memoir. Dozens of Charlie Russell illustrations grace the pages of this exceptional copy, four of them in full color. GRAFF 3999. HOWES S-1054. RAMPAGING HERD 2180. SIX GUNS 2152.
