Led Horse Claim, stories which cast over the reader the spell of great empty plains and wildernesses. Perhaps the author is less at home in the Oregon country than on the plains of Colorado. At any rate, her ap­ preciation seems that of an outsider, and her slight descriptions give no feeling of intimacy. lOccasional Address. The Led Horse Claim: John Ford. –c.
