W. T. Hamilton & C.M. Russell

 Salvete Omnes,

from wiki commons


as always you can count on the world library - archive.org. So a quick entry of book that can be found (several scans of the same volume) at the site.
The book - My Sixty years on the plains, trapping, trading, and Indian fighting - was written by William Thomas Hamilton.

In the old days  this esteemed Western historian George Bird Grinnell wrote a little biographical information in the entry to his book - Beyond the Old Frontier - published in 1913.





The 1905 book by Hamilton was published with a number of excellent illustrations painted by one of the most popular artist of the Old American West - Charles Marion Russell.

I 'corralled' them for you all :











we may return to this book in the future...
