Publication: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1952, New York

First edition. Cloth, 180pp., illustrated with maps from Lewis & Clark expedition, footnotes, bibliography, index. An excellent biography of this famous explorer and trapper. Colter was a member of the Lewis & Clark expedition who on the return trip left the expedition at Ft. Mandan and returned to explore and trap the northern Rockies. His trek through the Yellowstone region, alone and on foot, as well as his famous escape from the Blackfeet, have made Colter a legendary figure in the early history of Western exploration. An important work. A fine copy in dust jacket some very slight occasional edge wear.
