by Burton Harris w/ introduction by David Lavender. Softbound, 180 pages, 6" x 9". Colter was a crack hunter with the Lewis & Clark expedition before striking out on his own as a mountain man and fur trader. A solitary journey in the winter of 1807-08 took him into present-day Wyoming where he reported sights of hidden fires, smoking pits, and shooting water. He was probably the first white man to discover the region that now includes Yellowstone National Park. The author weighs the facts and legends about a man who was dogged by misfortune and "robbed of the just rewards he had earned".
