It is useful in the context of regional topography and is littered with historical reference which I can accept is not going to rock everyones' boats but it is useful, as a historic resource study. Surely can see that, or should I expound? I'd never heard of Nettie Wright.

If it walks like a duck, sounds like a duck, and looks like a duck ~ it is probably a goose.
You're afflicted with the "John Wayne syndrome", that is, by apologizing one is showing signs of weakness. John Wayne is dead and so is his one-dimensional vision. Try cultivating a more ( PERIPHERAL)wide-angled vision. You'll be surprised how the country opens up to options and choices. Or, you are free to continue on the narrow path that you obviously are more comfortable with. It's up to you.

Raynolds Maynardier, 1959.
After a reconaissance for suitable wintering point, Raynolds accepted the offer of Major Thomas Twiss to let the party stay in the abandoned buildings of the Mormon farm near the Upper Platte Agency of Deer Creek. He indicates in his report that the Agency itself was then housed in part of the Mormon complex.
Maynadier came in from his own reconaissance of the country between Tullock Creek and Richard's Bridge on October 12th. Pushing up Tullock creek early in September to its head, he had crossed the divide to the Rosebud and ascended that stream to its big bend cut across to the Tongue, and traveled on up Goose Creek and Little Goose, crossing to Clear Fork on the 17th of September.
Maynadier then moved down Clear Fork to its junction with the Powder. They then went up Powder River to the mouth of Crazy Woman Fork, and ascended that stream for 60 miles. On September 30th, they encountered Friday's band of Arapahoes, and Friday discussed at length the route they should take and provided news of his recent encounter with Raynolds. On October 2nd, they struck Raynolds trail and followed it to the Platte.
Not long after arriving at Deer Creek, Raynolds sent out J.H. Snowden to make a reconaissance of the country to the north. Snowden and seven men including the other principal scientific members of the party went down Deer Creek to Bissonnettes trading post and there engaged "Michael Boyer," as a guide.
