This early works on 'When Kansas was Young' is an absorbing collection of stories. FOREWORD: The Stories contained in this book have been written at odd times and published in the 'Daily Capital' of Topeka, Kansas. The stories present, I think,, some pictures of frontier life and frontier characters not found in any other book. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900's and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
