About this Item

8vo, pp. 316. Illustrated, name on end paper, a near fine copy. Bound in green cloth. Howes H10aa. "Fitzpatrick (1799-1854) ranks with Jedediah Smith, Bridger, and Carson as the four greatest mountain men. His first trip over the Santa Fe trail was in 1831, with the caravan on which Jedediah Smith lost his life. Fitzpatrick was later a guide for such men as Fremont, Abert, and Kearny; in 1846 he was agent for the tribes on the Arkansas, Platte, and Kansas Rivers."---Jack Rittenhouse. "Fitzpatrick was not only influential in shaping the fur trade during its formative years, but equally so as an early guide to emigrants and Army expeditions, and as an Indian agent, being generally respected red and white alike for his work in this connection. He has occasionally been hailed with some justification as the greatest of all frontiersmen of his period."---Dan L. Thrapp. Bookseller Inventory # 56166
