Humphrey, Mary A.

The squatter sovereign, or Kansas in the '50s. A life picture of the early settlement of the debatable ground. A story, founded upon memorable, and historical events, whose characters have been carefully chosen to represent the various types of men, and women who met upon the Kansas plains intent on settling the vexed question as to whether the territory should come into the union as a free, or slave state. Elegantly illustrated
