This rarely seen map was originally published in Cheyenne, Wyoming. A very fine map with only eight counties issued four years before it achieved statehood. Shows well developed topography and hydrology, Yellowstone National Park, Shoshone Indian Reservation, towns, railroads, telegraph lines, common roads and areas containing coal and gypsum. In 1883 the cattle industry comprised 90% of all commerce, but the winter of 1886-87 dealt a disastrous setback to this limited economy and delayed statehood.
