KIRKUS REVIEW

A chatty, friendly biography shows Carson as a boy and a man who strove always to do the decent thing by his fellow. A direct narrative style that places the hero in the actual home life and adventures that he lived, makes a pleasing, chronologically accurate story. But we object for instance to the short shrift made of Kit's venture with the controversial Fremont expedition, and the obvious attempts to keep the story at such a high plane of idealism that the realities of life are obscured.
