This reckless breed of men : the trappers and fur traders of the Southwest by Robert Glass Cleland( Book )

24 editions published between 1950 and 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,442 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here is the dramatic story of men who "belonged to a calling that had no counterpart." The fur traders, trappers, beaver-hunters, or mountain men, says Mr. Cleland, "started from frontiers at which more cautious pioneers were glad to stop." They were men to whom "danger became a daily commonplace...who took tribute of the wilderness and wandered through the reaches of the outer West with all the freedom of the lonely wind." Before missionaries, gold-seekers, and cattlemen, this reckless breed opened pathways to the western sea. Their story is in the very bones of our history

A Mormon chronicle: the diaries of John D. Lee, 1848-1876 by John D Lee( Book )

23 editions published between 1955 and 2003 in English and held by 523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Doyle Lee (1812-1877) was one of the most controversial figures of early Mormon history. A fervent convert, he was adopted by Brigham Young and rose to become a leading member of the church's hierarchy. Lee left behind a number of colorful diaries that reveal in fascinating clarity and detail the everyday life of Utah's pioneer settlers. In them, he describes his close relationship with Brigham Young, his experiences in converting Native Americans to Mormonism, his trials with farming and livestock, his encounters with his 19 wives, and his eventual exile to the barren wastelands of Lee's Ferry. In the 1950s, five of Lee's diaries in the Huntington collections were meticulously edited and annotated by historians Robert Glass Cleland and Juanita Brooks and published in two volumes by the Huntington Library in 1955 to great acclaim as A Mormon Chronicle, The Diaries of John D. Lee, 1848-1876. The University of Utah Press kept the book in print until the 1990s; it has now been reprinted as a Huntington Library Classic with a new foreword by Andrew Rolle, a Huntington research fellow and retired Cleland Professor of History from Occidental College. In his foreword, Rolle discusses the collaboration between Cleland, a leading historian of the Southwest, and Brooks, a notable scholar of Mormon history
