This book is a must for anyone with an interest in Wyoming History. So much of the history of the Cowboy State relates to the places where it occurred. Candy Moulton has done her usual excellent job in creating a history that is informative and easy to read. So the next time you find yourself in Wyoming, take a copy of this wonderful book along on the journey. You will not be disappointed.

Organization not very user friendly for travel. I didn't find much of anything I looked up as I traveled thru towns and byways. I had used a roadside guide previously which went by mile markers and was really fun to use.

A Roadside History of Wyoming (Paperback) by Candy Moulton --

Excellent reference book, great for general reading and for travelers.

As a scholar who has written much, including a thesis and dissertation, the lack of proper references bothered me. This made the book great reading, but of limited value toward further research.

As a Roadside reference -- the stated intention of the book -- it meets its goal and is very well done.

Kudos to the author. I enjoyed the book very much.

As you travel the highways of Wyoming, it is great to have a reference that provides you with the history of the towns that you pass. This book contains interesting facts regarding the naming of the towns and the people who shaped the west.
It was a gift, but they said they like it.
