Blair has painstakingly reconstructed the art, views and vision of a man who devoted his life to preserving the legacy of the American West-and it is a fascinating story.-Dean Knudsen, Historian, Scotts Bluff National Monument, National Park Service Of the many published accounts to come out of William Henry Jackson's long career, The Pioneer Photographer, first published in 1929, is widely accepted as Jackson's most trusted autobiography of his early pioneering days and his first eight years (1870-1878) as the official photographer for the U.S. Geological Survey. This reconstruction of Jackson's classic work, long out of print, presents one hundred sixty photographs and early drawings, paintings and lithographs by America's best-known landscape photographer, drawing on Jackson's diaries, other published accounts, and importantly his annotations of The Pioneer Photographer to create a complete and multidimensional view of the unfolding nineteenth-century American West. Editor Bob Blair has significantly expanded Jackson's original autobiography, reprinted here in full with the author's annotations, with seventy additional photographs, drawings, and paintings, and extensive excerpts from Jackson's writings, much of the new material drawn from archives and historical collections and never before published. - Publisher

The person who drove the wagons was called a bullwhacker. Bullwhackers got their name because they whacked the oxen to keep them moving. William Hooker was a bullwhacker in the Wyoming Territory beginning in May 1874. He knew Buffalo Bill and General Custer. He later became a newspaperman, editor of the "Erie Railroad Magazine." William Hooker drove a team of oxen hauling supplies for army posts and Indian reservations far from the railroad. He cracked a bullwhip and kept a rifle ready as he delivered suger, bacon, blankets, and sacks of shelled corn to Fort Fetterman, Red Cloud Agency, and other destinations along the old Cheyenne, Medicine Bow, and Sidney trails
