Legacy of the Tetons: Homesteading in Jackson Hole Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Today's Jackson Hole is a magnet for tourists who come for a taste of the American West. However, before the cars and buses, homesteaders on horseback and in wagons saw the beauty of the land and built their homes within sight of the majestic Grand Tetons.

This second edition of Legacy of the Tetons is a narrative of the bravery, love, heartbreak, joy, and fortitude of the early pioneers. Candy Moulton shares the struggles of those who lived and died on the land--some of whom came on foot in the Mormon Handcart Migration and established the settlement known today as Mormon Row.

"The tightly-drawn story line of this new edition of Legacy of the Tetons . . . lures you into the compelling world of the real Western frontier, where fur trappers, emigrants, and homesteaders fought for survival every day of their lives. This book is a priceless contribution to the study of Western history in general, and Wyoming history especially."--W. Michael and Kathleen O'Neal Gear, authors of People of the Moon

Synopsis:

These stories of homesteading the Wyoming frontier are told by a descendant of early settlers.
