Heroes Without Glory

by Jack Schaefer

This collection of essays features twelve heroes from the American West. Schaefer profiles pioneers of the West--the doctors, explorers, and cowboys who settled the challenging landscape and built communities in the Old West. These unsung champions highlight the unglorified work of the West that was achieved without violence and gunslinging.

Schaefer shares the lives of Grizzly Adams, George A. Ruston, John Snowshoe Thompson, John Phillips, Washakie, John S. Chisum, Thomas J. Smith, Valentine T. McGillycuddy, Charles Fox Gardiner, and Elfego Baca. Western enthusiasts and history buffs will welcome the refreshing biographies of the men found in this volume.
