PIONEERS by Robert Miller
Released: Jan. 1, 1992

"Lively historical writing, despite the invented speeches and hokey narrative device. (Nonfiction. 11-14)"
The third in Miller's ``Reflections of a Black Cowboy'' series introduces such nearly-forgotten figures as York, a slave who guided the Lewis and Clark expedition; Pony Express rider George Monroe; Ed Rose, known as ``Cut-Nose'' after Mike Fink bit off that appendage in an epic battle; and Biddy Mason, who spent most of her life as a slave but ended up as a wealthy citizen of Los Angeles.
