IT IS ONLY IN RETROSPECT that a Period in history is fully understood and appreciated. The men and women who were living during the "exciting days" of the "Old West" were so engrossed in securing food for the table and clothes for their backs, that they had little time to enjoy their hour in history. This is not unusual. Who of us has not lived through important periods of history, but was too involved with the mundane details of every day living to recognize the significance of the hour? So it was with the fur traders, '49ers, California immigrants, as well as the natives.
While it is true that the physical properties of many of the boom towns have fallen into complete decay, and all of the residents passed beyond, the events and experiences of the deserted settlements continue to live. Within the great research libraries such as the Henry E. Huntington and the Bancroft there are vast files of diaries, letters, newspaper clippings, and field interviews that together give us as complete a report as is possible - far more accurate than the observations of any one person who was alive on the spot. Many individuals have within their own libraries important files of the story of the West. Taken as a whole much of the "Old West" lives more completely in retrospect than if it were happening today.
Not the least of the important sources of the history of the west are to be found within the Brand Books of the international corrals of the Westerners. The Los Angeles Corral has produced twelve books of high merit. This is evident by the rapidity in which the books have become out of print, as well as the advances in price received for back issues. Not only is the corral within the shadows of the Henry E. Huntington library, but the corral has a group of competent and knowledgeable writers who are interested in the West. The combination is unbeatable.
The contributors to this the thirteenth Brand Book of the Los Angeles Corral are all experienced craftsmen in the art of story telling. Several have had chapters in prior Brand Books. The newcomers in this book are men with wide experience who have authored books and contributed to the leading magazines of the country. At least three of the chapters were first presented as programs at a dinner meeting of the corral. They were received with such enthusiasm and appreciation that the speakers were requested to prepare a manuscript for the Brand Book.
This Brand Book includes, not only the talents of fine writers, but the mature judgment of a publication committee made up of men with wide literary experience. It is no exaggeration to say that few writers in the West are better qualified than Homer Boelter, Dr. Edwin Carpenter, Paul Bailey, Don Meadows and Paul Galleher to guide the progress of the publication of a book. Homer Boelter and "Ed" Carpenter not only served as committee members, but worked long and arduous as associate editors. Brand Book Thirteen is the result of the combined efforts of writers, photographers, artists, printer and binder as well as a committee that gave guidance from the first evening of the appointment of your editor.
Finally a book only becomes a complete entity when it has been read. It is the hope of the editor that the reader will enjoy the pleasure of gaining some new knowledge to make the "Old West" live for him. Thus will the efforts of all be consummated in success.
