Recommended for: US history buffs, Native American enthusiasts.
Read in September, 2008, read count: 1

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.
