Old Bill Williams, Mountain Man Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Born during the American Revolution, Williams was a child of the early frontier. In his young manhood he became an itinerant preacher and appointed himself a missionary to the Osages, who soon converted him to their lifeway. The Osage girl he married died after bearing his two daughters. From this point on, Old Bill forsook civilization and made the wilderness his home. He was a master trapper and so identified himself in signing his name. He was one of the guides of the Sibley survey of the Santa Fe Trail in 1825 and some twenty years later was a guide with two different Fremont expeditions.

About the Author

Old Bill's biographer, Alpheus H. Favour, was a lawyer who deserted New York for Arizona in 1917. Except for a monograph on Arizona state laws he wrote only this on book, but in it Old Bill emerges clothed with color and authority. In the years since its first publication in 1936 it has touched a book's best destiny, that of exerting a special and lasting influence.
