He was a faithful and devoted husband to Joseph, his second wife, a gentle and loving father to their 7 children, and a loyal and trusted friend to all who knew him. Modest and soft-spoken, he was a man of quiet but fierce courage, a man who could be counted on when the chips are down." Based on the unpublished notes and other primary source materials of the late Blanche C. Grant, including interviews and letters from Kit's family and friends, this is the story of Kit's life. A fine copy in dust jacket with some spots of light rubbing or edge wear.
