Rideing accompanied Lt. George M. Wheeler on his survey for two years, as a newspaper correspondent and drew on that experience in his writing this adventure book. Chapters on many places in the West: Colorado, "Over the Boundary to Mormon-Land", Montana, Sierras, Lake Tahoe and much more.
'A thoroughly fine book for boys in every way. Full of interest and exciting adventures crammed with information, physical and geographical, of the great West, its new life, its native tribes, its abundant animals, it's vast resources. We know of no other book in which all these matters are woven together in so attractive a form.' The Churchman, New York
