Pioneer Life and Frontier Adventures is an authentic record of the life and times of Christopher “Kit” Carson and his companions in the American West. Derived from Carson’s own narrative, as well as the observations of the author and others, DeWitt C. Peters presents a sweeping view of the lands and peoples of the territories both east and west of the Rockies. He gives us a Carson stripped of the excesses of the dime novels; a sober, stalwart and truthful man who spoke French and Spanish, as well as several Indian dialects. He was an expert on native customs and habits. His early explorations paved the way for the westward expansion of the United States, and his abilities with a rifle created colorful legends.

Peters also unfolds for the reader, the great interior wilderness of the territories belonging to the United States, their native tribes and the truths and superstitions they held dear and acts at home as well as on the warpath. Filled with illustrations, DeWitt C. Peters has written an enlightening biography of one of America’s most colorful figures.
