Two Famous American Mountain Men, Explorers & Trappers-The Personal Narrative of James O. Pattie, of Kentucky by Timothy Flint & Narrative of the Adventures of Zenas Leonard 1831-1836 by Himself

by Zenas Leonard and Timothy Flint
Publication Date: 25/11/2014
A special two-books-in-one edition containing two classic accounts of the early Westerners This good value Leonaur edition combines the personal narratives of two of those unique early Americans who explored the interior of the North American continent when it was still a vast untamed wilderness occupied only by its wild creatures and tribes of indigenous Indians. Zenas Leonard was born in 1801 in Pennsylvania. In 1831 he joined a trapping and trading brigade which launched him into a lifelong career as a 'mountain man.' Leonard fought at the Battle of Pierre's Hole, ' explored the Rocky Mountains and the Sierra Nevada and roamed the Crow country along the Yellowstone. This highly regarded classic is partnered here by James Ohio Pattie's riveting account of his experiences in the South-West. In 1824 the Pattie's embarked on a trapping and trading expedition that would bring hardship, imprisonment and, for some of the party, death. This is an account of adventure, of hunting, of fights with native Indians, bandits and of collisions with Mexican authorities. Whilst some have accused Pattie of telling tall tales, there can be no doubt that his is an essential narrative for all those interested in this fascinating history of frontier America.
