Cragin Manuscript

The following are links to digital images (PDFs) of F. W. Cragin’s unpublished manuscripts for his Rocky Mountain Library. Cragin worked for 35 years to document and write the history of the American West, but died before it could be printed.

The scanning project was funded by a generous grant from the Colorado Digitization Project. The manuscripts available below are the only ones that have survived. In some cases the chapters are unfinished and/or incomplete. They have been divided into smaller sections in order to minimize download times.
