Item description for Men To Match Our Mountains by Jay Lawson...
Wyoming's Chief Game Warden, Jay Lawson, has chronicled the life histories of some of the most colorful outdoor men and women of early 20th Century Wyoming, including trappers, cowboys, forest rangers, hunting guides and early game wardens. Lawson spent years conducting interviews and gathering more than 140 old photographs depicting their fascinating lives spent in country as wild as their spirits. This is a remarkable collection. Were it not for Lawson's keen interest in Wyoming history and his gift as a storyteller, some of the state's most legendary figures and their stories would be lost forever. By capturing the memories of Wyoming's pioneer outdoors people, Lawson does a tremendous service for our generation, and those who will follow.-Tom Reed, author of Great Wyoming Bear Stories and Give Me Mountains For My Horses. Jay Lawson's book has preserved the history of Wyoming's colorful outdoor characters. His career as a Wyoming game warden took him to wild places where he uncovered these delightful stories that he is sharing with us. I recommend Men to Match our Mountains to anyone with an interest in western history and our outdoor heritage. - Dave Bragonier, author of Wild Journey

A Close Look at Wyoming's Heritage Dec 31, 2007
Picked it up from a library display and couldn't put it down until I finished. Twenty-seven chapters about 27 different folks, some of them husband and wife. Individuals who, in reality, spent the latter part of the 19th century and most of the 20th century making a difference and affecting how Wyoming was, but more importantly, how Wyoming IS! Their love of the mountains and their way of life made and are making Wyoming history. Without some of these folks, there might not be hunting seasons; in fact, their might not be game to hunt. And those contributions range to cover many other states; all states neighboring Wyoming and more than likely, the whole North American Continent. A tribute to hardy folks living in a harsh environment and making the best of it in many, many ways. You feel you get to know some of them, even in a short chapter. A good read for young and old.
