Richard Harding Davis was one of the most recognizable journalists of his day. Davis was larger than life for his time, so much the persona of his era that, with its passing, he has been largely forgotten and his reporting on major events or social conditions is difficult to find. In January 1892, he boarded a train to begin a three-month tour of the West to write a series of articles for Harper's Weekly. This series was later published in a book, The West from a Car-Window. The West offered adventure, danger, and potential riches; and had captured the imagination of the country. This well wri... View more info

Udall, for the reasons filmmakers and novelists would have us believe.In The Forgotten Founders, Udall draws on his vast knowledge of and experience in the American West to make a compelling case that the key players in w...

In the 1850's, the American West was ablaze with land speculation. From Minnesota to Kansas, town site companies eagerly sought out the most desirable locations for new towns, taking advantage of an 1844 Act of Congress. This generous law was the impetus for ambitious men to create companies and send exploration parties into the prairie wilderness. Among the new breed of speculators were men from the Dakota Land Company from St. Paul and the Western Town Company from Dubuque, who later joined forces. Their sights were set on the Falls of the Big Sioux River. A rival company was organized in Si... View more info
