" Factual account of Kit Carson and of his career as trapper, adventurer, guide, soldier, and Indian agent, from his abandoned apprenticeship to a saddler in Missouri to his death in 1868." [from OCLC] Bernice Blackwelder first became interested in Kit Carson while teaching in Central College in Fayette, Missouri. It was near Fayette, Missouri, that Carson spend his childhood. As a child in Kansas Blackwelder listened to the conversations of old-timers who were Kit Carson's contemporaries, and she became acquainted with members of the Carson family In Missouri and Colorado. After several visits to the Southwest, Blackwelder undertook a search of government records in Washington, D.C., for the Kit Carson Home and Museum at Taos, New Mexico. She spent several years pouring over rare books and manuscripts and following the Kit Caron trail from his birthplace in Kentucky to many points in the Far West. [from the dust jacket].
