Westering Man: The Life of Joseph Walker

כריכה קדמית
University of Oklahoma Press, 1985 - 339 עמודים

Joseph Walker (1798-1876) had probably the longest and most distinguished career of any frontiersman in American history. This first biography of this great frontier hero is based on years of research and many previously unpublished and neglected sources. It gives a rousing and authoritative picture of Walker-his pioneering heritage, his many accomplishments, and his exceptional personality.
