Devil's Gate : owning the land, owning the story by Tom Rea( Book )

4 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this narrative, Tom Rea traces the history of the Sweetwater River valley in central Wyoming - a remote place that includes Devil's Gate, Independence Rock, and other sites along a storied stretch of the Oregon Trail - to show how legal ownership of a place can translate into owning its story." "The area was once heavily traveled. John C. Fremont passed through here, as did American Indians hunting for their own survival, half a million emigrants, the photographer W.H. Jackson, and an ambitious surveyor named Billy Owen. Occasional clusters of buildings, the modern highway, and a few historical markers are all that seem to distinguish the area now from what they encountered 150 years ago. But this static serenity masks a history of conflict."--Jacket

The Hole in the Wall country of Wyoming's Bighorn Mountains is well known to history buffs steeped in Butch Cassidy lore, but for millennia it's been a crossroads for all kinds of people. The name refers to a break or "hole" in a wall of red sandstone, 40 miles long. Where the Middle Fork of Powder River breaches the Red Wall lies the Hole in the Wall Ranch. This is the story of the land, the people, and the ranch itself - a history of Wyoming and the West, centered around one dramatic place. --back cover
