From the cover: A rare photograph taken in the spring of 1859 by Albert Bierstadt showing emigrant wagons in the hustling town of Bellemont, Doniphan county. It was located on the Missouri river, 1 1/2 miles north of Wathena. Bellemont failed to survive, and the townsite was officially abandoned in 1876.
