Smithsonian Institution Press, 1989. First edition. Softcover. Clean, tight 4to, 166pp. Incribed and signed by author. The original name on the inscription has been blacked out, but the signature and greeting are still as they were originally.

A book of some of the finest western photography done from 1871 through 1900. Hillers had an "eye". His photos are incredibly clean and clear and document the lands and the natives and the white interlopers of the west and southwest during the settling of the west. A special book.
