New Mexico, and Fort Laramie, Wyoming, and offers a fascinating
insight into day-to-day living conditions on the military frontier of a
century ago. The book contains photographs and descriptions of near-
ly 450 bottles from the thousands that were recovered, most of them
found under ancient privies, beneath barracks floors, and in aban-
doned rubbish heaps. The book, by Rex L. Wilson, senior archaeolo-
gist for the National Trust for Historic Preservation, also contains in-
formation on base markings, glass colors, and impressed stamps, and a
list of bottled products that were advertised in newspapers and peri-
odicals of the latter half of the nineteenth century. Bottles on the
Western Frontier ($19.95, paper; $40.00, cloth) is available from the

The Venturers: The Hampton, Harrison, and Earle Families of
Virginia, South Carolina, and Texas, by Virginia G. Meynard, is a
recent publication of the Southern Historical Press, Inc. (P.O. Box
738, Easley, South Carolina 29640). This family history and genealogy
traces over 4,000 descendants of William Hampton. Beginning with
Hampton's arrival in Virginia in the seventeenth century, the work
follows three hundred years of migration and movement of the Hamp-
ton and allied families. Although the narrative ends in 1902 with the
death of General Wade Hampton III, the genealogy is brought up to
1980. The price is $42.50.
The Way of the WA VES, written by Marie B. Alsmeyer, is the per.
sonal narrative of a South Texas woman who was among the first
WAVES recruits during World War II. Her story "typifies the ex-
periences of a generation of American women who volunteered to
serve their nation during the darkest days of global war . . . and who
would probably do it again, if necessary." The book is published by
Hamba Books (19go Creekwood Dr., Conway, AR 72032), and is
priced at $14, postage included.
