8 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 644 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Blair has painstakingly reconstructed the art, views and vision of a man who devoted his life to preserving the legacy of the American West-and it is a fascinating story.-Dean Knudsen, Historian, Scotts Bluff National Monument, National Park Service Of the many published accounts to come out of William Henry Jackson's long career, The Pioneer Photographer, first published in 1929, is widely accepted as Jackson's most trusted autobiography of his early pioneering days and his first eight years (1870-1878) as the official photographer for the U.S. Geological Survey. This reconstruction of Jackson's classic work, long out of print, presents one hundred sixty photographs and early drawings, paintings and lithographs by America's best-known landscape photographer, drawing on Jackson's diaries, other published accounts, and importantly his annotations of The Pioneer Photographer to create a complete and multidimensional view of the unfolding nineteenth-century American West. Editor Bob Blair has significantly expanded Jackson's original autobiography, reprinted here in full with the author's annotations, with seventy additional photographs, drawings, and paintings, and extensive excerpts from Jackson's writings, much of the new material drawn from archives and historical collections and never before published. - Publisher
The pony express goes through : an American saga told by its heroes by Howard R Driggs( Book )

8 editions published between 1935 and 1963 in English and held by 542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Merely to recite the factual side of the Pony Express is not to get the heart-throbs of the story. This stirring bit of America's making can be brought back to life in all its feeling and color only as one meets the actors in that drama and hears them re-enact in a casual and natural way the parts they played in it. The central purpose of this book is to extend just that privilege to its readers. Through its pages they may meet some of the real pony riders that the author has actually known; they may get the story of the Pony Express as he has done in its vibrant verities from first-hand sources. The pictures that illuminate the pages have been created by an artist who also has a personal and intimate knowledge of that story. - Foreword
