Thought that this was a well written biography about a very interesting man in a very interesting time. I enjoyed the fact that I found myself laughing to some of the wild adventures and funny anecdotes.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in this time period and lifestyle.

This is a pretty interesting book about a man who was instrumental in settling the Oregon Country.
