Remington by Frederic Remington( )

8 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and French and held by 811 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Frederic Remington (1861-1909) was one of the last American artists to offer his contemporaries a vision of the American Old West, that wild terrain with its immense prairies, herds of bison and the last American Indians. A painter, but above all an illustrator popular in his time, Remington skilfully captivated the public's attention by presenting a realistic view of this primitive way of life on the brink of submitting to invading civilisation. Authentically capturing its roughness, force and also its colours, Remington quickly became the representative of American painting in the eyes of th
Heart's desire : the story of a contented town, certain peculiar citizens, and two fortunate lovers : a novel by Emerson Hough( Book )

46 editions published between 1905 and 2018 in English and held by 530 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Heart's Desire is a little settlement hidden away in a corner of the West "where men have gone to live at peace--without law and without women." The inhabitants dozed in the sunshine, smoked, drank, gambled a little, toiled fitfully, fought occasionally, and dreamed a good deal. Then the railroad came, and the dreams were gone. Along the railroad came Constance and the old vexations that troubled Eden and have troubled every assemblage of men ever since. It is a picture of rough Western life, with clever character delineations -- Book jacket

23 editions published between 1905 and 2001 in English and held by 493 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The American West offered abundant opportunities for those seeking gold and gunfights, fame and infamy. Popular Western writer Emerson Hough (1857-1923) was the author of the history The Story of the Cowboy and of the classic Western novel The Covered Wagon (which in 1923 became the first epic film of a now long-standing genre). He was a friend of Sheriff Pat F. Garrett, whom he accompanied on a long horseback trip in New Mexico while gathering material for The Story of the Outlaw (1905)." "Based on firsthand research, and frequently recounted in the actual words of outlaws and eyewitnesses, Hough's history explores the varied lives, exploits, crimes, and fates of cattle rustlers, horse thieves, marauders, bandits, bank robbers, and assassins. The Story of the Outlaw also examines notorious border wars, vigilante movements, and other armed frontier conflicts." "Besides revealing the facts behind mythic Western outlaws like Billy the Kid, William Clarke Quantrill, Cole Younger, Frank and Jesse James, and the Dalton Gang, and lawmen like "Wild" Bill Hickok and Pat F. Garrett, Hough brings to life lesser-known but equally deadly desperados: Henry Plummer, who, under the respectable guise of sheriff, murdered and robbed those he was elected to protect; Boone Helm, a hired killer and part-time cannibal; Joseph A. Slade, reputed to carry as a souvenir his enemy's ear on his watch chain; and many others."--Jacket
The young Alaskans by Emerson Hough( )

The Young Alaskans (1911) By Emerson Hough Three young boys living in Valdez, Alaska join a relative on a coastal mapping expedition around Kodiak Island with the revenue cutter (coast guard) "Bennington". Unfortunately, the fog is so thick they are swept out to sea and pushed by the current about 100 miles down the island. This is their story about how they lived off the land (with the help of some of the native Aleuts) for months and their efforts to be rescued. These juvenile adventure stories were written around the turn of the 20th Century. The form part of a series of books initially published between 1908 and 1922. The series includes: The Young Alaskans 1908; The Young Alaskans on the Trail 1911; The Young Alaskans in the Rockies 1913; The Young Alaskans in the Far North 1918; and The Young Alaskans on the Missouri

37 editions published between 1916 and 2018 in English and French and held by 418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eccentric pioneer lawyer Emerson Hough made his literary mark as a writer of classic Western tales, but some of his most critically acclaimed works are fictionalized accounts of key events in American history. The Magnificent Adventure focuses on explorers such as Lewis and Clark and the chain of events that eventually led up to the Louisiana Purchase.

The author describes the "black volcano" over which white Southerners live, in an intensely realistic manner. His knowledge of the white man's burden, his keen descriptions of Northern mis-apprehension, equal his tremendous power as a story-teller and his elemental sense of humor
