Books on Manitoba History: A Horseman and the West

by Beecham Trotter

Brandon: T. Keith Edmunds
Softcover, 246 pages
ISBN 978-0-9783349-0-1
First printing: 1925
Second printing: 2007

Beecham Trotter, a horse dealer during the formative years of Brandon, recounts his personal experiences and shares his take on the events that shaped the Canadian West in A Horseman and the West. Originally published in 1925, the book sheds light on the City of Brandon’s development and on the people who gave birth to the City. The personal anecdotes and observations in this work highlight milestones of history in a way that a compilation of names, places and dates simply cannot.

Copies of A Horseman and the West are $20.00 (plus GST) and are available from Daly House Museum.
