"The Frontier Years" by Mark H. Brown and W.R. Felton, written about L.A. Huffman's travels and most importantly, his photographs of the west and especially Montana from 1879 to 1931; "...he took many of his most important photos in the early 1880's. He did so with relatively crude equipment and technology, yet produced images of a quality that could not be bettered today. He photographed the West as it was - the unvarnished truth, not romanticized versions as depicted by novelists, artists and Hollywood. Huffman left an unmatched visual record of early Montana". Book is in very good condition with some pencil writing on inside cover page; has a gift inscription to a previous owner of the historic 320 Guest Ranch in Gallatin Canyon south of Bozeman Montana; dust jacket has slight tears from normal handling wear & tear. Measurements are, 11.25"L x 8.75"W x 1"D
