The following is some very interesting HISTORY on the OSAGE ORANGE
used as fences in the 1850's to 1870's as the settlers moved west.Until
the advent of Barbed Wire the Osage Orange was the only proven
method of fencing for your farm.The "open range" was to be no more and
this created much animosity between the Rancher and the Farmer.This
information is taken from the book "The Great Plains" by Walter Prescott
Webb and published in 1931 by Grossett and Dunlapp.

Without Osage Orange the movement Westward would
have been a much longer trek.
Walter Prescott Webb the author of the above historical information
was a native Texan and renowned historian.He is one of few who has
given the Osage Orange a place in History that it readily
deserves.No infringement or copyrights are intended and I have
tried to be as accurate as possible to give all information as to the
author and this publication of 1931.This book is available from
Amazon as ISBN 0803297025.For anyone who wants to learn more
about the History of the West don't pass this up.Just click on the
Icon and then place the title or ISBN number into Search.Walter
Precott Webb, the author has several other History Books listed as
well.
