Adventures on the Columbia River

Adventures on the Columbia River Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Ross Cox was a fur trader for the Pacific Fur Company. In 1811 he sailed from New York, around the Horn, to Hawaii, and on to the Columbia River, exploring inland to Montana along the Clark Fork and Flathead Rivers. For six years he lived on the frontier - and beyond - in a violent world of white and red men, bears and wolves, frostbite, and starvation. He wasn't a hero, but he was a survivor, and a sharp observer who wrote one of the best first-hand accounts of the fur trapper's life.
