Pages From the Past; Stories from Niobrara County Homesteaders

In 1951, interviews with about a dozen pioneers in Wyoming written by June Willson (Read) were printed in the Lusk Herald.  Most of them included photographs.  After publication, they moved to family scrapbooks or faded into basements.

With interest growing in the region about local history and relative to the book Frontier Madam, Read decided to edit these interviews, and with the help of her sister, Phyllis Hahn, located photographs for the rest of the homesteaders.  

Pages From the Past: Stories from Niobrara County Homesteaders, edited and rewritten by June Willson Read, PhD. 
Copies may be obtained from the Stage Coach Museum, Lusk, WY 82225, or Contact Me.
