The author of this volume? ia an enthusiastic ex?
pounder of the capabilities of the western portion
of this continent as rt grain, gold, ttiid pastoral r??
gion. He sets forth his views with such utidii'?
vehemence of expreaaion as naturally to put th?
reader on his guard against extravagance and illu?
sion. (Jluiinnig tlit* right to be henrd, from a re?i
dance of twenty years in the wilderness, and in
the niidst of tin? pioneers who are clearing the
track of empire, he announces a u.-w order of in?
dustry and inat.'rial development on n acale of the
i'rindest dimen.doi s. Among the p.iints for which
he contends are: that the theory mi vast deserts,
and uninhabitable regions between Kansas and
Cal fot?M 11 wholly without foundation; that Um
G i eat Phi?! are the laeat grazing laude on eartii,
producing a natural hay, arid supportiug millions
oi wild cattle, without shelter, throughout the
year; that the immense region lying between the
Entera Cordilleras and the liifnillifpt has a cli?
mate and soil capable of siip|?orfiiig ?md t-nrii'hiiig
the lni.st der.*"C population in the world: and that
