Dr. Alex Hunt, Professor of English at WTAMU and author-will speak on his book, "Our Indian Summer in the Far West"-In 1879 two Englishmen, writer Samuel Nugent Townsend and photographer John George Hyde, set out for a pleasant Indian summer on a tour of the American West. The duo documented their travels by steamship and train, through Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and Chicago, across the Missouri to the "new state of Kansas" and the beginning of the western lands and business opportunities that were to become the focus of their narrative.  Interested in the West's economic and environmental potential, the two men focused on farming in Kansas, railroads and mining in Colorado, a bear hunt in New Mexico, and ranching in Texas.
