KIRKUS REVIEW

Written and illustrated by this author who consistently maintains high standards, this covers the trail West from the days of Daniel Boone through the final explorations of John Charles Fremont. In between come explorers who haven't received the same amount of publicity, but whose names hold magic: Zebulon Pike, John Colter and Jedediah Smith. The biographies are brief, accurate and anecdotal. The black and white illustrations have caught the shagginess of the mountain men and the scenes illustrated are dramatic, generally conveying the dangers of the unknown territory explored.
