South Pass 1868: James Chisholm’s Journal of the Wyoming Gold Rush, by James Chisholm and edited by Lola M. Homsher


A staff writer for the Chicago Tribune, the author was sent to report on the gold strike made in the late 1860s at South Pass on the western trails. This is his journal, illustrated by himself – a graceful, observant narrative full of the real essence of frontier mining life.
