This social history makes extensive use of unpublished letters, dairies, Journals, and information gathered in interviews by the author over the last thirty years. Particular biographical attention is paid to William B. Close and his brothers, since their ingenuity and enterprise created the colony of gentlemen on the prairie, and to a great extent their personal lives affected its destiny.
