An early guide and a St. Louis photographer team up to show us the St. Francis as it was in the early 1900's , shortly after the Paragould Southeastern had extended its line to Hornersville, Mo. the rail company published a 38 - page promotional booklet aimed at luring St. Louis sportsmen to the hunting and fishing lodges located along the route.

Although the PSE had dropped its original name - Paragould and Buffalo Island Railway Co. - its booklet was titled. "The Sportsman's Paradise on the Buffalo Island Route, Arkansas and included a drawing of a western bison on the back cover.
