Book Description Stanford University Press, Stanford University, CA, 1930. Hardcover. Condition: Good. No Jacket. A typewritten note has been tipped in on the front endpaper. It reads: "Dear Mary: This little volume comes to you with love, with thanks for your generous help during the past two years and with very best wishes for the future." It bears the handwritten signature of Cardinal Goodwin and is dated 1 June, 1942. "Six lives of Fremont have been published.The principal facts of Fremont's live have been brought out in the foregoing works, but there is still a place for a more definitive interpretation of his career than they afford. This volume is intended to supply that need. Its chief purpose, then, is to explain the influences and forces which brought him prominence and to evaluate the part he actually played in the public and private enterprises with which his name has been associated.A careful examination of more extensive materials dealing with the subject than have been used by former investigators has resulted in two special contributions. The first has involved subtracting some of the credit formerly given Fremont for the part he played in such well-known episodes as the Bear Flag revolt and the conquest of California, and to place squarely upon him the responsibility for the disaster which concluded his last expedition. The second contribution consists of presenting a more complete account of his connection with the fraudulent contracts made in Missouri during the Civil War while he was in charge of the Department of the West, and of giving, for the first time, an account of his participation in the railroad scandals of the post-war period."
