New York: The Vanguard Press, 1952. First Edition. Fine in light tan cloth covered boards with blue and red text on the spine and front board. A small quarto of 9 by 6 inches with a non-consequential touch of soiling to the cloth at the heel of the spine. In a very good+ price clipped dust jacket with mild creasing at the upper edge of the spine area and slight soiling to the rear panel. 320 pages including an index and text. Illustrated with numerous black and white photographic plates. This was the last volume to be published in this series. All nine volumes in the series were under the general editorship of Roderick Peattie with contributions from a number of writers. The book contains many references to Dead Wood, Calamity Jane, Bill Hickok and others of that period. Carol Fitzgerald in her valuable bibliography Series American, states on page 257 of Volume I that "no evidence found that Vanguard reprinted The Black Hills."
