I have just started reading the Vic Smith autobiography. It's pretty good. There's not a lot of material culture detail (that's what I look for), but I haven't seen any outrageous lies.
I report more later.
If you haven't read it you might like "Happy as a Big Sunflower" by Rolf Johnson.It about the authors experiences as a young man from 1876-1880 during the settlement of Nebraska as a homesteader and his adventures later on.I picked up a copy from Edward R.Hamilton Booksellers at a discounted price for $4.95.It's a Bison Books from the Univ.of Nebraska and if I remember it's anotated.
