What a book. Extremely interesting account of Kit Carson's life, and the life of the pre-Civil War southwest. The bold, beautiful, cowardly and brave are all revealed, with a cast of characters that would rival any Russian play.
As usual, the American Indian ends up with the short end of the stick. Anyone looking to have a better grasp of the history of New Mexico should read this book.
Mr. Sides is to be credited for such a great tome.
