Western Fronteirsman Series, XIII. From Clark #99 "At the time of the publication of this work, J. Ross Browne had yet to receive solid biographical treatment. Coincidentally with this work, several new books became available on Browne and this gap has now been filled to a large extent. This work is principally documentary in nature, although the author provides a thorough assessment of Browne's significance at the end of the book. Also included is a bibliographical listing of the writings of Browne in serial publications and in books, documentary reports and pamphlets."
