JOHN COLTER – FRONTIER SCOUT

MEMORABILIA IS RAPIDLY DISAPPEARING


FACTUAL REPRESENTATION

OF OUR WESTERN TREASURES

Folks, I have been reporting and reviewing our great American history for many years. It never surprises me that an author reaches the same conclusion that I have. John Colter was one of our national treasures. Trouble was, the press didn’t find him so he got lost among the Kit Carsons and Liver Eating Johnsons, Colter made history and here the author, Aaron b. Stevens summed it all up reporting on little known facts and records that his research developed. The story of John Colter is titled

SOMETHING HIDDEN

GO AND FIND IT

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 pioneers Scouts and frontiersman 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 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.

JOHN COLTER – FRONTIER SCOUT

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 western magazine printed on heavy slick paper 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 Media Mail Postage of $3.50 to U. S.; $5.00 Priority; $12.30 for International Mail. Texans must pay 8-¼ % sales tax. Thanks,

Tom
