La Breche aux Buffles.
by Mandat-Grancey, Le Baron E. de
xvi, 292pp, illus. 1st edition. Some rubbing, interior very good. Adams states this was originally published in wrappers; this copy is in contemporary cloth and paper covered boards. The Baron, an ardent French monarchist, sportsman, and horse fancier, settled near Buffalo Gap on the Fleur de Lis ranch in 1884. His book deals with the Black Hills, and with Black Hills characters. He apparently was fed some pretty tall tales by the locals, and Adams says some of his outlaw stories are frankly ridiculous. In French. 6 Guns 1437, Herd 1436, Howes M245, Jennewein 156
