f Great ValueWhat wonderful changes a few years have wrought in this western country Less than eighty years ago not a single white man dwelt within the present confines of Howard and Cooper Counties. Their soil, had doubtless, occasionly been pressed by the feet of the reckless hunter and the daring ad venturer, but their beautifully rolling prairies, their charming timber-fringed streams and enchanting groves were the homes of the antelope, the elk, the deer and the red man. How all has been changed by the hand of progress! To-day the busy hum of industry everywhere resounds, and the voice of culture and refinement echo where once was heard the howl of the wild beast and the war-whoop of the Indian.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
