A promotional work for the railroad, this pamphlet is subtitled, "A few testimonies of the results obtained from farming in this wonderful region." The text is comprised of letters written by real residents in this "Wonderland of the Northwest," noting bountiful crop yields and cheap land. The rear cover is a map of the Chicago and Northwestern Railway showing routes from Chicago out to Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Nebraska, and the Dakotas. Relatively scarce.

Price: $300.00
