"Letters from the Past" brings back and reveals the actual thoughts and experiences of our ancestors from 1816 thru 1956. The majority of the book centers on Dick Evans Arrowsmith (1862 - 1954) when he owned a horse and mule ranch in Nevada from 1890 to 1904. He engaged in capturing and breaking wild horses as well as buying and selling horses and mules. While away from his ranch on business, he wrote letters to his wife keeping her updated on his location and daily events. His recorded work deserves to be saved for the reading enjoyment of today's and future generations. With cell phones and emails that get erased almost daily, it would be impossible to replicate this book for anyone living in today's twenty-first century.
