Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 188528327X, Hardcover)In the autumn of 1845, a 17-year-old boy, son of a prosperous Cincinnati family, persuaded his parents to let him go on a journey west. He had been inspired by reading Frémont's recently published account of an expedition to the Rocky Mountains, and he set out in a wagon train led by the legendary Céran Saint Vrain, bound for Bent's Fort in the southeastern part of present-day Colorado. For the next months, he lived a life of high adventure, chasing buffalo on horseback, fending off Indian raids, retrieving stolen horses, living with the Cheyenne, yarning around the campfire...scenes we've all seen in movies, but now suddenly made real.
