THE PATHFINDERS: The History of America's First Westerners

Mr. Rawling, beginning with the Lewis and Clark expedition, bases his study on the West's five main rivers: the Platte, Missouri, Arkansas, Green and Columbia. He has produced a colorful book that should prove to be of wide general interest. His insight into Indian life and mores is extraordinary and his retelling of the legends and his research on frontier lore add up to an excellent introduction to early Western Americana.
