    Scope and Contents

    This album of 30 phographs depicts scenery of the High Sierras and ranching scenes from around the West, likely from the late 19th century. Photographs show California and the High Sierras, while the remaining views depict hunting and ranching in sagebrush country, and haying and sheep grazing on open ranges. Although most images are of men working or scenery, women are also represented in a few photos. There are some views of log cabins, a man drying meat, cowboys branding cattle, and a couple cowboys near a chuck wagon.
