Jay Lawson captures characters in latest book

A discussion of some of Wyoming’s most colorful outdoor men and women will be the topic of a lecture and book signing by Game and Fish Chief Warden Jay Lawson at the Wyoming State Museum at 7 p.m., May 23.

Lawson will discuss, “Men to Match Our Mountains,” his latest book about 20th Century Wyoming trappers, cowboys, forest rangers, hunting guides and early game wardens. Lawson has chronicled the life histories of these intriguing characters, many of whom he met as a young game warden.

Those who love the high country, horses, hunting and mountain adventure will be captivated by these stories. All proceeds from Lawson’s book will be donated to the Wildlife Heritage Foundation of Wyoming to further the conservation of Wyoming’s wildlife.
