History Lesson

Unpublished until 1998, Wind River Adventures: My Life in Frontier Wyoming by Edward J. Farlow recalls his life in Wyoming covering the period from 1871 until 1931 and makes for great reading. This first-hand account details his relationship with the Indians on the Wind River Reservation with anecdotal insight into Custer’s last stand, the battle of Crowheart, the Hole-in-the-Wall Gang and even a few movie stars. Published by High Plains Press, this book is a must for anyone interested in American western history.
