A Mountain Man Classic
The River of the West is easily the most reliable and extensive first-person history ever written of that unique and never-to-be-duplicated era. An extraordinary first-hand account of those who came West and lived with the land.
Of all the men who walked the Rocky Mountains a century and a half ago, none other is so completely alive as Joe Meek. This book has been described as a howling yawp of youth and vitality, challenge and danger, exultation and joy. It is all of that and more.
Originally published in 1870, this book includes the original illustrations and offers a new introduction, map, notes, bibliography and index.
