University of Wyoming Press Launches First Book Tour

Jun 14, 2023

Book coverMichael Amundson, the first author published by the University of Wyoming Press (UWyoP), will tour Wyoming this month to present on the UWyoP’s first book, “The Art and Life of Merritt Dana Houghton in the Northern Rockies, 1878-1919.”

Amundson’s book brings together — for the first time — more than 200 bird’s-eye sketches created by pen-and-ink artist Merritt Dana Houghton between 1891 and 1915. These sketches capture towns, ranches, mines, businesses, historic sites, and animals in Wyoming, northern Colorado, Montana, Idaho and Washington.

The University of Wyoming Press originated in 2019 when the UW Libraries was accepted as a member of the University Press of Colorado (UPC). The press and its publications aim to facilitate communication among scholars and engage the peoples of Wyoming and the Mountain West in conversations about our histories, cultures, and resources.
