Description

Christopher (Kit) Carson was a true hero of the American frontier. Edward Ellis (1840 - 1916) was an American journalist, school administrator and author. He wrote many dime novels. He specialized in boys' stories, inspirational biography, and history for both children and adults. Dime novels had come into fashion. They were small books that were inexpensive to buy and easy to carry. Kit Carson was a hunter, trapper, Indian agent, guide and Colonel in the US Army. An excerpt from the beginning of the book reads, "His lot was cast on the extreme western frontier, where, when but a youth, he earned the respect of the tough and frequently lawless men with whom he came in contact. Integrity, bravery, loyalty to friends, marvelous quickness in making right decisions, in crisis of danger, consummate knowledge of woodcraft, a leadership as skilful as it was daring; all these were distinguishing traits in the composition of Carson and were the foundations of the broader fame which he acquired as the friend and invaluable counselor of Fremont, the Pathfinder, in his expeditions across the Rocky Mountains."
