JOE MEEK

Jim Bridger, Chief Joseph of the Nez Perce, and Will Rogers are a few of our famous westerners about whom Shannon (Garst has written her fond biographies. Now she takes Joe Meek, a mountain man in Bridger's time, through his pioneering paces. He is seen in all of his various surroundings- on the Virginia plantation from which he longed to escape, as a warehouse helper and then trapper with William Sublette's fur company, and then finally on his own and the equal of Kit Carson and an important figure in the settlement of Oregon. An intimate, indigenous portrait.
