d a plenty of grass."

A few minutes after this Freemont said, "Say, Carson, why not go to that lake there and camp? There is plenty of grass and water," at the same time pointing to the south. Carson raised his head and looked at the point indicated. Then he said, "Col. there is no water or grass there." Freemont replied, "Damn it, look. Can't you see it?" at the same time pointing in the direction of what he supposed to be the lake. Carson checked his horse until Freemont came up near him and then said, "Col., spot this place by these little Juniper trees, and we will come back here tomorrow morning, and if you can see a lake there then I will admit that I don't know anything about this country."

Freemont was out of humor all the evening. He had nothing to say to any person.

The next morning after breakfast was over and the herder had driven in the horses Carson said, "Now Colonel, let's go and see that lake."

Under the circumstances Freemont could not say "no." I think five of us besides Carson

Just as great as the first book - this is Kit Carson's adopted son.

His wonderfully descriptive writing, along with his colloquialisms, are wonderfully entertaining to read. He led an amazing life, and my only complaint is that he doesn't tell more about some of the adventures!

Not only is this a great read, but it is wonderful for history buffs.

I now live near the Santa Fe Trail in Kansas, and come from a family of pioneers who eventually were some of the first home-steaders in West Texas. I loved the stories my grandparents would tell, and Drannan's adventures remind me of those stories.
