Excerpt from The Undeveloped West, or Five Years in the Territories: Being a Complete History of That Vast Region Between the Mississippi and the Pacific, Its Resources, Climate, Inhabitants, Natural Curiosities, Etc;, Etc;; Life and Adventure on Prairies, Mountains, and the Pacific Coast
Another book on the West! Yes, and why not? The West is the future home of millions now living in the East, and there is more that ought to be known of its wonders and capabilities than is likely to be published by the few who have devoted themselves to the work. There ought to be a new book on the West, by some careful Observer and thorough explorer, at least once a year; for so many and so various are the changes, so important the new discoveries, that a volume is but thoroughly read before the facts it nar rates are old.
