Introd. "Once the cattleman-homesteader difficulties were settled, the way was cleared for agricultural and industrial development. As irrigation and modern farming were introduced, the region became unique for its high food production. The world is a little less hungry because of this. The Oregon Trail, the Pony Express, the first telegraph and railroad to cross the nation, the hammering out of new patterns of cooperation between strong minded cattlemen and determined homesteaders, all played important roles in the story" --
