For your consideration is this 1895 edition of “The Life of Kit Carson: Hunter, Trapper, Guide, Indian Agent, and Colonel U.S.A” by Edward S. Ellis, published by New York Publishing Company. Kit Carson is one of America’s true heroes. Born in 1809, he became the most famous hunter, scout, and guide ever known in America. More than that, he was a man of character. Edward Ellis’ research includes original sources, along with material exclusively commissioned for this book. “The Life of Kit Carson” is a story of the expansion and exploration of America’s West. Hardship was a way of life. “Can you imagine travelling barefoot over the California terrain in a desperate effort to save American troops from Mexicans? Kit Carson and a compatriot did it.” This book is rich in history. The book measures 7 1/2" X 5 1/4" X 1 1/4" and is in fair condition.
