This 10-year compilation is offered to assist those interested in finding specific topics in the forty issues indexed. There are errors despite all efforts to prevent them, and your help is solicited in correcting those of omission and commission. This index will be expanded to include corrections and entries from later issues of Wagon Tracks and made available as a printed copy or on computer disk.
The availability and cost of later editions of the index will be announced in Wagon Tracks. It has been a pleasure to peruse again all the material published during the past ten years. Thanks is hereby extended to all those who contributed to this effort.

The location of each item includes the following information: volume number (Roman numeral), colon, issue number (Arabic numeral), initial letter for month and last two numerals of the year published enclosed in parentheses, comma, page (Arabic numeral), and column on page (lower-case letters). Illustrations appear in bold type. Multiple entries for a topic in the same issue follow the initial entry as a series of pages and columns; multiple entries from different issues are separated by a semi-colon. The months of issue are November, February, May, and August. An example for an item about William Becknell from Volume II, issue no. 1, November 1987, on page 5 column c to page 6 column c, appears as follows: II:1(N87), 5c-6c. An example of several entries, including an illustration, about Paul Bentrup in Volume III, issue no. 3, May 1989, and Volume III, issue no. 4, August 1989, appears as follows: III:3(M89), 1c, 15b, 16a; III:4(A89), 1c.
An attempt has been made to list the names of places after the names of people with the same name; for example, Gardner, KS, appears after the entries for Alexander, Charlotte, Katie, Mark, Rusti, and Terri Gardner. A number of items have been cross-referenced to assist those searching for additional or related information.
The new generation browsers have a "Find In This Page" action that can be quite helpful on these long pages. Another suggestion is to use one word, instead of using "John C. Smith" use "Smith" it has to be just as it is on the page or it won't work right.
