MEN TO MATCH OUR MOUNTAINS
by Jay Lawson
Here are some of the most colorful outdoor men and women of the early 20th Century Wyoming, including trappers, cowboys, forest rangers, hunting guides and early game wardens. Their love of wildlife and wildlands led to fascinating lives spent entirely in the mountains. There they discovered a second frontier in country as wild as their spirits.
Wyoming’s Chief Game Warden, Jay Lawson, has chronicled the life histories of these intriguing characters, many of whom he met as a young game warden. Others he knew by reputation and subsequently sought them out, contacting relatives if they had already passed on. Realizing the unique generation was nearly lost to history, he spent years conducting interviews and gathering hundreds of fabulous old photographs depicting this splendid era.
Those who love the high country, horses, hunting and mountain adventure will be captivated by these stories. Proceeds are donated to the Wildlife Heritage Foundation of Wyoming to further the conservation of Wyoming’s widlife.
