1886 Emigrant Life in Kansas
What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, Illustrated
First edition. An fascinating work of American history from the nineteenth century, written by Percy G. Ebbutt. “This account of Kansas emigrant life in the 1870's was written by a young man who had returned to his home in England and was writing his account for a British audience. Consequently, he describes and explains many things that were so familiar to an American of the time, such as how to make a corn shock, that they are rarely mentioned in American books written for Americans.” - Lynn H. Nelson
