About this title


From the torn pages of Hamblin's own journals and diaries - found in an old, weathered saddlebag - the real story of Jacob Hamblin comes to life. Read about this frontier explorer who spent more time with warring Indians than Daniel Boone or Kit Carson. Come to know the man who at the peril of his own life, when ordered by superiors to kill captive Indians, said: "You'll have to shoot me first." Feel the suspense as angry Navajos prepare to burn Jacob Hamblin at the stake. Colonize the West. Encircle the Grand Canyon. Cross the Colorado River. Explore the unknown with the man who held special powers to resolve the needs of both his people and the Indians. Live the adventure of Jacob Hamblin in this book - a modern look at the frontier life and the legend.

About the Author:

Hartt Wixom has been writing about angling for more than four decades. During that time, he has had more than a hundred articles published on fishing in such magazines as Outdoor Life, Field and Stream (five years a field editor), Sports Afield, Western Outdoors, American Angler, Southwestern Fly Fishing, and Salmon-Trout-Steelheader. On one fishing trip, he went from his home in Provo, Utah, to the Kenai tip of Alaska and back, fishing on his way as he went. He has traveled to the Northwest Territories of Canada five times to catch trophy fish, including the largest fly-caught grayling in the 1967 Field and Stream contest and a world-record (catch and release, six-pound line class) northern pike on a fly he tied himself. He has been an outdoor writer and editor for several western newspapers, including three Utah dailies: Deseret Morning News, Daily Herald, and St. George Spectrum. Hartt has received top outdoor writing awards for his tell-it-like-it-is journalism, including recognition from the North American Association for Conservation Information. Always concerned about the next generation of anglers, he and three other fishermen organized the first chapter of Trout Unlimited in Utah. In 1965, he served as the organization s first president in Utah. One of his prime goals is to simplify angling and protect the resource for all to enjoy for years to come. Hartt and his wife, Judene, live in Ivins, Utah, and Cokeville, Wyoming. They have seven children and nineteen grandchildren.
