As New. 252 Pages Indexed. In this classic of western Americana, George Frederick Ruxton, brings to life the whole heroic age of the Mountain Men. The author, from his intimate acquaintance with trappers and traders of the American Far West, recounts the story of two of the most adventurous of these hardy pioneers--Killbuck and La Bonte, whose daring, bravery, and escapes from their many Indian enemies were legend among their fellow frontiersmen. We follow Killbuck and La Bonte and their mountain companions--Old Bill Williams, Black Harris, William Sublette, Joseph Walker, and others west from picturesque Old Bent's Fort, into the dangerous Arapaho country near the head-waters of the Platte. We hear from their own lips, in the incomparable mountaineer dialect, hair-raising stories of frontier life and humorous tales of trading camp and frontier post. Life in the Far West is adventure extraordinary with the true chronicle of the rugged Mountain Men, whose courage and disregard for personal safety or comfort opened the Far West to the flood of settlers who were to follow. The breathtaking watercolors and sketches, which depict in minute detail many of the familiar scenes of the early West, were done by one of Ruxton's fellow explorers, Alfred Jacob Miller. This is Volume 14 in The American Exploration and Travel Series. Illustrated with 24 drawing and photographs.
