New York: Doubleday, Page, & Co. Near Fine. 1900. First Edition. Hardcover. Clean and tight in original pictorial cloth binding. Small ding at lower edge of spine. Stories of 19th century travels in the west and the Rocky Mountains by the wife of the famous naturalist Ernest Seton-Thompson. Full-page drawings by Ernest Seton-Thompson, G. Wright and E. M. Ashe, and the Marginals by S. N. Abbott. Grace Gallatin Seton-Thompson was born on January 28, 1879, in Sacramento, California, the youngest of three children of Albert and Clemenzie (Rhodes) Gallatin. Her parents were divorced in 1881, and Seton-Thompson subsequently moved with her mother to New York City. In the preface, Seton-Thompson explains: "This book is a tribute to the West. I have used many Western phrases as necessary to the Western setting. I can only add that the events related really happened in the Rocky Mountains of the United States and Canada; & this is why, being a woman, I wanted to tell about them, in the hope that some going-to-Europe-in-the-summer-woman may be tempted to go West instead." ; Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item. It has its own physical history that imbues it with a character lacking in ephemeral electronic renderings. . (Inventory #: 39013)
