3rd Printing. 201 pages. Illustrations. Signed by Frank Gillette. Frank Gillette was born on Haigler Creek on a ranch which was accessible only by horse and mule pack. The background is the remote area where Graham-Tekksbury took place. This work as C.L. Sonnichsen writes, Gillette looks back to frontier times with their hardships and triumphs, their dances and romances, their feuds and killings. A marvelous work on a bygone era with the names of its major characters, photographs and a map of the location of their families. He continues the history until the area began to change with the advent of automobiles. Bound in pictorial paper wraps, s few small spots to front wrap. A very good copy.
