Instructions for Smooth Reading

Thank you for considering smooth reading "Silverspur," subtitled "The Mountain Heroine, a Tale of the Arapaho Country." This 98 page book published in 1870 has several figures, and if you want to see these you can download the web browser, ePub, or kindle version from dropbox using the links below. (If you are asked to sign-in to dropbox, just click the "No thanks, continue to view" link at the bottom of the sign-in dialog to download the file.)

Enjoy the Wild West adventures of Dove-eye, also known as Kate Robinette, in battle and love. Early in the story, she throws a battle axe at the hero. But after many adventures (spoiler alert!) she will end up happily married in St. Louis where "no one who was not acquainted with her story would have supposed that the greater part of her life had been spent among savages."

Thanks again for considering this, and I look forward to your comments.
