WHITE RIVER MASSACRE

By William J. Betts


WHITE RIVER MASSACRE

MEMORABILIA IS RAPIDLY DISAPPEARING

FACTUAL REPRESENTATION

OF OUR WESTERN TREASURES

WHITE RIVER INDIAN MASSACRE

TERRITORY OF WASHINGTON

Folks, this is a very rare, hard to find, off-brand western magazine. I have ten thousand westerns and this is very unusual so here it is – in excellent condition and color. Regardless, I probably cannot replace it at any cost.

IT IS A COLLECTOR’S ITEM IN ITSELF.

Frankly, as I read and review more and more of our early pioneer history – there is one conclusion I reach that stands out above all the rest AND THAT IS:

FOR EVERY INDIAN MASSACRE,

THERE WAS SOME JUSTIFICATION

In this story entitled WHITE RIVER MASSACRE by William J. Betts – the well known and talented writer says simply this event should never have happened and that the cause was our American Government gave land it did not own to settlers to take away from Indians.

IT’S AS SIMPLE AS THAT

Please read this. There were many a western story published – the common ones about Cowboys and Indians are listed on Ebay every day but the rarer ones about the real, true story of the massacres of the old west like this one are seldom found. Collectors treasure them and their price guide value rises every day. They are hard to find. I hunt them out because really the better, untold and rarer stories were published in the rest.

Here’s one of ‘em.

FOLLOWING PURCHASE AND PAYMENT, IF YOU WILL WRITE ME OF YOUR SPECIAL NAME OR INTEREST, I WILL DO A FREE SEARCH OF MY WEBSITE AND UNINDEXED STORIES AND NAMES.

WWW.GENEALOGYIMAGESOFHISTORY.COM

IF I FIND SOMETHING THAT I THINK MERITS YOUR INTEREST, I WILL WRITE A REVIEW AND PLACE IT ON EBAY AND GIVE YOU NOTICE AND A HEAD START TO

BUYITNOW!

Following my retirement, I have dedicated my remaining hours to indexing the Genealogy of our western pioneers. During my research, I discovered that thousands of our kinfolk lay unfound and unrecognized on some book dealer’s shelf. Because Old Western History and Memorabilia was printed before computer indexing, I index every item I sell.

This complete index will be bound and included in this offering at no additional cost.

Humbly, I am trying to keep our history alive

I hope you appreciate the effort.

Folks, sooner or later - Genealogists are going to realize that their family kinfolks are laying on some dealer's dusty shelves. If I can contribute to finding one little name or photo of that long lost ancestor you have been waiting to find, it’s worth all the time I spend.

WHITE RIVER MASSACRE

By William J. Betts

WHITE RIVER MASSACRE

MEMORABILIA IS RAPIDLY DISAPPEARING

While others clip ads from magazines, I save history. It’s a shame that our past is being lost. It’s as simple as that.

My wife kids me that after I find a piece I like, buy it, read it, research it, take a picture, scan it, write the blurb, pay the Ebay entry fee and commission, that I end up making about 50 cents an hour. But, OH HOW I LOVE THIS OLD WESTERN HISTORY. What a story, Rare Story!!! Great Pictures. You will love it as it was published in this old complete and seldom found western magazine of many years ago. The issue is in good condition, the cover is in vibrant color.

As clearly stated in my description, this is featured story in a rarely found and seldom read unusual and complete western magazine. I don't give out name of publication or date because I have caught competitors copying my index and work and trying to sell it as theirs. I hope you understand.

Buyer pays postage of $3.50 First Class Postage to U. S.; $4.75 Priority; $4.50 to Canada; $11.00 for International Mail. Texans must pay 8-¼ % sales tax. Thanks,

Tom
