KIRKUS REVIEW

Contrary country, and some of the ornery characters that went with it, provide some high humored accounts of courage and cunning. Jim Bridger, Kit Carson, and ten trappers come out of the mountains and prove insuperable to the men- and women- of a Spanish town; an old man's whiskey is used to ruin a shipment of guns on a wagon train west and reveals his cache of gold coins; a white trapper's ""squaw fever"" is cured by his faithful Claw; a recreant grandfather returns to his family with Kit Carson's rifle and uses it wall; etc., etc. These tales of the old west are tall in spirit and broad in entertainment values. Genial.
