Description


Historian David W. Marshall crafts this captivating history from Colter's primary sources, and has retraced Colter's steps--seeing what he saw, hearing what he heard, and experiencing firsthand how he and his contemporaries survived in the wilderness (how they pitched a shelter, built a fire, followed a trail, and forded a stream)--adding a powerful layer of authority and detail.

The American Grit series brings you true tales of endurance, survival, and ingenuity from the annals of American history. These books focus on the trials of remarkable individuals with an emphasis on rich primary source material and artwork.
