Cattle King of Leavenworth
Just released! The long-awaited story of the Ryan family saga that began in Leavenworth, Kansas, and expanded west with cattle drives, ranches, and ore mining. “When Matthew Ryan died at his home on June 20, 1893, he was one of the richest men in Leavenworth, Kansas.”
Art Kidwell of Clark, Wyoming, has thoroughly researched the Ryan family for the past five years and offers a detailed account of the making of the Ryan fortune. Kidwell is a member of several historical societies, including the Leavenworth County Historical Society, past president of the Wyoming State Historical Society, and currently serves as a historian on the Wyoming State Review Board for the National Register of Historic Places. He has written several other books, including Growing Up at the Desert Queen Ranch and In the Shadow of the Beartooth: Clark, Wyoming.
A limited number of books are available at $35 plus tax, shipping & handling by calling the museum. Profits from the book are being donated to the museum.
2010 was a year of "Writing Women Back into History". Inspired by this theme and the focus LCHS had on women throughout the year, the book, Celebrating WOMEN of Leavenworth County is being released as an LCHS fundraiser. With nearly 300 pages and over 150 photographs, the book, written by Mary Ann Sachse Brown, features over 100 biographical sketches of women who trod on Leavenworth county soil since its founding. A large percentage of the portraits are from the Everhard Collection and supplemented with images from the Leavenworth Public Library, the Kansas Historical Society, and private collections. Proceeds from the sale of the book will go to the Carroll Mansion Museum. The book may be ordered on-line from Lulu.com or in the museum's Victorian Gift Shoppe.
