Sagebrush Triology:Idah Meachum Strobridge and Her Works

By: Dwyer, Richard & Richard Lingenfelter
Price: $14.95

Smith (history, U. of Texas, El Paso) presents the diary of her great- grandfather, providing a glimpse of daily camp life and battle scenes from the perspective of a private during the Indian wars. This single volume contains three volumes of recollections by an early Nevada settler. Reprinted in their entirety are In miners' mirage-land (1904), The loom of the desert (1907), and The land of purple shadows (1909). In their introduction, Dwyer and Lingenfelter discuss how Strobrige (1855-1932) came to be known as Nevada's first woman of letters.
