GAUDY CENTURY, 1848-1948, SAN FRANCISCO'S ONE HUNDRED YEARS OF ROBUST JOURNALISM of special interest. The 302 page work was published by Random House, New York, in 1948.

Another such one paper work is Gene Fowler's TIMBER LINE: A STORY OF BONFILS AND TAMMEN who operated the Denver Post. The 480 page work lacks an index and bibliography but is well written, an interesting look at a yellow journalism paper that ruled the Rockies for many years.
