CHEYENNE, Wyo., Sept. — La Frontera Publishing announced today that the University of New Mexico Press will be the distributor for the revised second edition of Candy Moulton’s book Legacy of the Tetons currently being released by La Frontera Publishing.

This re-edited second edition of Legacy of the Tetons with new material is an historic account of the men, women and children who battled the land and the elements to homestead in and around Jackson Hole, Wyo., and the Grand Tetons during the 1800s and early 1900s, and the struggle they faced to make a community.

It includes a special section on the Mormon Handcart Migration and a look at the historic settlement known as Mormon Row.

“We are excited that the University of New Mexico Press, one of the nation’s leading distributors of Western historical books, has agreed to help us bring Candy’s book to the marketplace,” said Mike Harris, publisher for La Frontera Publishing. “It is a classic American tale of pioneering spirit and courage.”
