Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Between 1842 and 1854 John C. Frand#233;mont, renowned as the nineteenth century's greatest explorer, and Kit Carson, the legendary scout and Indian fighter, boldly ventured into untamed territory to fulfill America's "manifest destiny." Drawing on little-known primary sources, as well as his own travels through the lands Frand#233;mont and Carson explored, David Roberts re-creates their expeditions, second in significance only to those of Lewis and Clark. andlt;Iandgt;A Newer Worldandlt;/Iandgt; is a harrowing narrative of hardship and adventure and a poignant reminder of the cultural tragedy that westward expansion inflicted on the Native American.
