Synopsis : Adventurer in reference to Joseph Renshaw Brown, includes careers as soldier, fur trader, entrepreneur, lumberman, founder of cities, politician, speculator, legislator, editor, Indian agent, Minnesota promoter, opportunist and optimist. He was there when Minnesota was the roaring frontier. He often found himself 200 miles from the law, a newspaper on the road. He was praised, denounced, investigated, applauded, threatened and shot at. This book is a chronicle of life, free enterprise and politics on the frontier a lively, dangerous and different frontier. This story is not only about hard-won successes, whose monuments still stand, but of hard-lost failures that left little trace.

Description de la librairie : My wife and I are inveterate book collectors who have accumulated large collections prior to our marriage. Cindy has collected modern firsts but has not listed many yet, and I have had a greater interest in Midwest history, sports, autographed editions, and non-fiction. We are now officially outta shelves and want to find good homes for some of our duplicates, tag-a-longs from buying collections, and other items that we have loved too much to put back. We are merely part-time book dealers with other full time work. We endeavor to grade strictly and describe accurately with true book collectors/lovers in mind. If you are not satisfied with your purchase, you may return it for any reason for a full refund, excluding return shipping. We are also interested in buying Midwest history, archaeology, Indian history, auto racing, and autographed presidential books and journals.
