The book covers his memories of the pioneer days in a very enjoyable and light manner, ably supported by the cartoons and caricatures of L.R-H.

Book in excellent condition for age. Dark red cloth boards with gilt titles to front and spine. A few light marks on boards and slight bumping and scuffing to corners. Inside, browning to inside blank cover page, very light foxing to couple of early pages otherwise very clean and well bound. Nice example.
