Abstract:

Once upon a time, great men roamed the American West. They rode across its broad prairies, pushed over majestic mountains, shot down raging white-waters, and strode through limitless forests as they headed to the Pacific. Their encounters with western flora and fauna left them speechless, though they did not forgot to pen their first thoughts, sketch their immediate impressions, or map site and location. Those words, images, and numbers were every bit as important to the winning of the west as guns, plows, and wagons.
