Men to Match Our Mountains
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, 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, Wild Journey
A brilliant account of the history of people and wildlife in Wyoming, a must read for anyone who values wild critters and unique people. -Len H. Carpenter, Wildlife Management Institute
