2290. HAFEN, Arthur Knight. Dixie Folklore and Pioneer Memoirs. St. George, Utah: Privately published, 1961. 39 pp. 12mo, original light tan suede pictorial wrappers. Wrappers slightly sunned at upper margin, otherwise fine. Very scarce, privately printed.

First edition. Published for the St. George Centennial in 1961. This local history of Washington County (interchangeably called “Dixie”) in southern Utah contains Native American folklore, early recollections of pioneers, and overland accounts by men and women (some handcart pioneers). The first expedition to the area was by Parley Pratt in 1849, and by 1852 John D. Lee had settled at Harmony. The Dixie mission was one of the farthest missions from the church to be settled, and life and the journey there were hazardous in the early days. Ranching interest: rustlers’ 1878 attacks on Mormon herds being driven to markets in Nevada (especially at Stateline Canyon); pioneer practice of joining livestock of various owners and hiring guards to protect them from depredations; attacks by outlaw gangs on Mormon trail herds; cattle roundup in Bull Valley; Charles Franklin Foster’s 1876 trail drive to California (“There were five deserts to cross, and we crossed one that required three days, and this without water for the cattle until a rain came”). $35.00

In the sections on the various regions of Colorado where ranching is practiced, good detail is provided, such as pinpointing where and by whom cattle were first introduced in various regions; cattle ranches replacing stage stations in the ‘sixties; and stock raising at the time of publication. Volumes 3 and 4 contain biographies and family histories, including Colorado cattle baron John Wesley Iliff and two subsequent generations of Iliffs.

They came by the thousands, long winding ‘trail herds’ working their way northward. Soon the prairie was again covered, rivers and lakes of shining, widespread horns replacing the dark sea of massive humps that once had blackened the landscape” (pp. 214-15). $45.00

Despite the danger and panic that extended to Denver, the mail got through (only two wagons of supplies lost) in a large train of over 100 wagons and 300 men who left Denver with a military escort with cannon. Ben Holladay demanded that federal troops assist or he would stop the overland mail. Thousands of soldiers came to the plains, including the formidable “Galvanized Yankees.” By summer of 1865, the peril was past for ranchers and other establishments. $125.00

First edition. The Far West and the Rockies Historical Series, 1820-1875, vol. 15. Clark & Brunet 104:XV. Mintz, The Trail 193: “Fourteen additional forty-niner accounts.... Concerned with the ‘Mormon Trail’ route from Utah to California.” Paher, Nevada 744 & 748. Wynar 109. The account of Ransom G. Moody (first published at San Jose in 1877 in The Pioneer) contains a superb account of California rancho hospitality. Moody arrived at Lugo’s Ranch in February of 1850 where his cattle went blind and shed all their hair, but “were improved by their sickness.” Lugo’s son, accompanied by four vaqueros, visited Moody’s camp and invited them to a lively fandango, where Moody’s skittish daughter, Minerva, rode mounted on a saddle in front of Lugo. “A few days later Lugo drove a band of several hundred cattle to Mr. Moody’s camp and told him to select one for beef.... They remained in camp at this place for five weeks, during which time quite a friendship sprang up between the families of Lugo and Mr. Moody. Lugo was anxious that Moody should settle there, and offered him the free use of fifty cows, and all the land he could cultivate, together with all the seed, and all the men and teams needed to sow and harvest his crops.” Joseph P. Hamlin Jr.’s account of the Pomeroy Wagon Train (1849-50) colorfully describes California ranchero life: “The rancheros are probably the most independent people now existing. Possessed of large quantities of stock, which have risen enormously since the commencement of the gold mania, the horse & cattle trade is all in their own hands.” Of the nature of the wild cattle, Hamelin found them “harder to drive than it would be to drive a woman.” $40.00

An appendix (pp. 263-76) contains testimony on the Bear Flag Revolt, in which Godey defends Frémont’s appropriation of livestock from Juan Padilla (Roblar de la Miseria and Tamales ranchos), Joaquín la Torre (Rancho Arroyo Seco), General Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo (Rancho Soscal), and other Sonoma ranchos: “And first, I deny flatly that any outrages or depredations were first committed by the American forces (or as they are termed, desperadoes) upon the inhabitants of Sonoma and surrounding ranches, upon and subsequent to the taking of that place.” $60.00

Paher, Nevada 744, 746. Present are the diaries and journals of Sheldon Young, James S. Brown, Jacob Y. Stover, Charles C. Rich, Addison Pratt, Howard, Egan, Henry W. Bigler, and others. In addition to travelers’ reports of large herds of cattle and horses, included is material on ranches along the routes, including Rancho de Santa Ana del Chino, Lugo’s Ranch, San Francisquito Ranch, and others. Walter Van Dyke of the Pomeroy Wagon Train recounts California ranch hospitality after crossing Cajón Pass: “I shall never forget this night’s adventure in this wild mountain pass.... If we hadn’t been in a famished and exhausted condition we might have appreciated with pleasure the agreeable change in the country.... We reached the Cucamonga Rancho about ten o’clock.... We found an American family here and were supplied with an abundance, including milk and butter—a rare treat, indeed, and a great change in the fare we had been accustomed to during the many months of our trip. A few days later we passed over to the Chino Ranch, better known among the immigrants of that period as Williams’s Ranch. Colonel Williams, the owner, had, during that season, sent out many parties for the relief of the immigrants. The next morning Colonel Williams furnished me a horse and a guide to come into Los Angeles.... On the way we stopped at Rowlands on the Puente and were treated in the same hospitable manner characteristic of all the ranch owners here.” $35.00

This volume contains several excellent inroads into ranching subjects, including two famous illustrations: “A California Rodeo,” a contemporary drawing by W. H. Hilton, and “California Method of Killing Cattle for Tallow and Hides” by Edward Vischer. Most valuable for our subject are the chapters on “Home Seekers” (pp. 195-225, much detail on early ranching families in California) and “Horse Thieves: Raiding California Missions and Ranchos” (pp. 227-59). The latter incorporates the recollections of José del Carmen Lugo of Los Angeles, a member of the prominent Lugo family, descending from Francisco Salvador de Lugo, who came with Rivera y Moncada’s expedition of 1774: “When I was eight or ten years old, that is, from 1821 to 1824, there were a great numbers of wild and very troublesome horses. They would come to the very outskirts of the town and eat the pasturage away. The government finally decided, in agreement with the pueblo [Los Angeles], to have a general killing of these wild horses. I remember seeing three corrals for this purpose here in Los Angeles.... Cowboys, on horseback, drove whole herds of wild and tame animals into these enclosures and closed the great gates.... Two or three lancers were stationed at each of these gates to spear the wild horses as they emerged, this being done after the ranchers had indicated the animals they were claiming.... Many thousands of horses were slaughtered in these times.” $50.00

First edition. The Far West and the Rockies Historical Series, 1820-1875, vol. 13. Clark & Brunet 104:XIII. Wynar 3406. Among the 1859 businesses listed in Denver, Jefferson Territory, is J. W. Hiff [actually John Wesley Iliff, the noted cattle baron of Colorado] (p. 200): “Squatting upon fine farms, and establishing ranches is about the best and most money-making pursuit anybody can engage in out here.... Hundreds and hundreds of fine locations for farms and ranches have already been claimed, and some improved and worked to advantage and profit.... Col. Jack Henderson (of border ruffian notoriety) has squatted upon a valuable tract of 320 acres, on the Platte river...and herds and stables cattle at a remunerating price per month. He has raised some 200 tons of hay...made a corral, or staked fence, large enough to keep 200 head of horses.... This business pays.” Similar detail on other such ranches, e.g., Sagendorf & Clark. The writer blithely notes that the chief of the Arapaho has not yet closed title to the region “to Uncle Sam” (pp. 209-10). $40.00

The success of this venture was the first major breach in the stranglehold monopoly that the Hudson’s Bay Company had held on cattle in the Pacific Northwest. $45.00

 

2306. HAFEN, LeRoy R. & Ann W. Hafen (eds.).

First edition. Clark & Brunet 105: “Fort Laramie, founded in the early days of the fur trade, was a focal point of westward expansion for nearly a century.

Jennewein, Black Hills Booktrails 55: “A chapter on the Black Hills, gold discovery, Custer, Crook Campaign of 1876.” Malone, Wyomingana, p. 4. The last chapter portrays the latter years of Fort Laramie as a crossroads for the many cattle herds sent to supply forts and ranches in the Powder River area, Montana, and the Dakotas. “In the late ‘seventies and early ‘eighties the Fort Laramie scene was undergoing a change. The Indian wars were over, the settlement period had begun. Ranchers were acquiring holdings, and the great expanses of Wyoming grass, which had once fed buffaloes, now pastured great cattle herds” (p. 386). $75.00

Dobie & Dykes, 44 & 44 #12: “One of the best-written of all the range books, more readable than Roosevelt’s own Ranch Life and the Hunting Trail.

In addition to ranching material, Hailey’s rare state history contains much on early explorations, fur traders, settlers, gold rush, outlaws, vigilantes, and Native Americans, particularly the Nez Percé War. Of Scottish ancestry, John Hailey (1835-1921) crossed the plains emigrating to Oregon and enlisted in the Rouge River Indian War in 1855 and was promoted to lieutenant.
