This excellent reference work identifies the guns used in America during the era of eastern settlement and the westward advance of the frontier — particularly the arms used in the West during the first half of the nineteenth century. More than a descriptive record of gun types, the book relates the weapons to the people who made, sold, and used them. Accompanying chapters on "Arming the American Indian, “Personal Weapons of the Traders and Trappers," as well as surveys of military arms, small cannon, and other accessories are rare illustrations of antique muskets, repeating rifles, pistols, flintlock guns, Colt revolvers, powder horns, bullet molds, boat cannon, and other weapons — all clearly identified and described.

Reprint of Guns on the Early Frontiers, University of California Press, Berkeley and Los Angeles, 1957.
