Williams, Warren and Elsie, eds. The Fortunes and Misfortunes of Tully Williams: An Autobiography. Boise, ID: Privately Printed 1976. 261p, a few ills. Very good paperbound, reproduced from typescript as issued. No. 77 of an unspecified limited edition, signed by Warren Williams and Elsie Williams. ** Publishes a 1945 diary written by Tully Williams, who was born in 1870. After a few chapters of family history, the diary deals chiefly with ranching in Montana and North Dakota, horse trading, horse breaking, etc., in the early 20th century. Full of vivid detail and lots of hard work. Williams--who must have had a photographic memory--also worked as a miner, sheep shearer, harvester, sawmill teamster, mail carrier, and more. An engaging read.
