Additional Details

This company had wide-ranging investments in the extractive industries, including lumber in Texas and Louisiana, and coal in Wyoming, Kansas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Missouri. They also owned a rail line. This promotional book documents all of these operations with numerous photographs and extensive descriptions. It is described as "chiefly a reprint" of the 1 November 1902 issue of American Lumberman devoted to the company. Still, we don't often find substantial books which are unrecorded in OCLC. None traced at auction.
