Exhibit item:
"Old Grizzly Adams, The Bear Tamer"
Beadle's Boy's Library, 1889

Part of a popular series of literature for boys, this short story is another tale of adventure about Grizzly Adams. Printed on the most inexpensive pulp paper, brittle and flaking to the touch today, these stories entertained a generation of children, and were mailed to willing subscribers for as little as five cents an issue.
