    1 thought on “CHRISTOPHER CARSON; Familiarly Known As Kit Carson The Pioneer of the West

    1. Lots of information about his life as a frontier man and Indian ventures and battles. Rather violent in places and has almost no information about his personal life and family. I would like to know more about how he lived the more quiet parts of his life.

    2. True American heroGood read from bygone Era, a true story of a great American that opened the country our forefathers. He was one that made America great!

    3. Kit Carson was born December 24, 1809 in Kentucky. He became a trapper, hunter, explorer, guide, Indian lover and fighter.This book is a collection of things that happened to him. He is pictured as a great man. I think he was.He killed a lot of beavers, elk, buffalo and Indians. He helped the white man exploit the west and steal California from the Spaniards. I'll give you that. His story and stories like it are a major source of our obsession with guns. Kit had a respect for and affinity for th [...]

    4. John S. C. Abbott was a famous biographer in the 19th century. So, it was with great interest that I read a biography with nary a thought for political correctness. For example, when Abbott lived in the 1800s, it never occurred to him that Native Americans wouldn't like his liberal sprinkling of the term he used for them--"savages." When this book was written, it was still okay to call an American Indian, a "savage." But clearly is not acceptable today. One reason why the American Indian will no [...]

    5. This is a reprint of a book written in the late 1800s by a well known biographer. It is decidedly not "politically correct" in reference to the nobel savages of the West. It describes Kit Carson in almost saint like terms. Still it is interesting and, if even partly true, certainly describes a person of remarkable abilities who got just about everywhere in the Western USA. Kind of fun to read such an account from soon after the the actual life of the man. I could tell that the author was at leas [...]

    6. Great book, but paperback publishing company couldn't have done less than they did to make this a book anything special. They even spell the author's name one way, and then turn around and spell it another way later on in the book.Also of note, when this book was written, it was still okay to call an American Indian, a "savage." And clearly a reason why the American Indian will not accept a football team called "Washington Redskins." Duh! It is understandable why an author nearly 3/4 of a centur [...]

    7. Good book but long and detailed. Only for readers very interested in the subject. Provides interesting details about frontier life. The author is clearly a huge fan of Carson, and I got the impression that the book may not be very balanced. Personal faults may have been glossed over or restated to make them look less bad.

    8. Good ReadI like the story line. He was detailed enough to make you feel like you were there. I was born and raised in north western New Mexico. I felt like was back home. I recommend this book for every one.

    9. First rate bio of kit carsonScholarly writing by abbott is refreshing. Well described by a man of letters. Recommended highly. Would like to read other works by this author.
