Blind- and gilt-stamped brick-red cloth, rubbed, corners bumped, spine ends lightly frayed. Ownership signatures of S. A. Riggs and Jetus R Riggs, New Derry, Pennsylvania. SCARCE. Very Good. This little volume on homesteading seeks to help the individual settler find the most congenial place to locate a new home in the sparsely settled lands of Kansas, Nebraska, Minnesota, Nevada, California and Oregon and the Territories of Wyoming, Colorado, Dakota, Utah, Montana, Idaho, and Washington. It borrows heavily from the travels and insights into stock-raising, wool-growing, and the establishment of farms by Edwin A. Curley of London who had travelled in the areas in question to promote western settlement among emigrants from Great Britain. Curley published Nebraska: Its Advantages, Resources and Drawbacks (1875). Curley traveled extensively in Nebraska, Kansas and Wyoming in the 1870s, and reported that settlers had successfully acquired free land in the American west. 10 copies Worldcat; not in Howes; I could not find any for-sale offerings or auction records for this title.
