The Life and Adventures of Kit Carson


Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(4 stars; 1 reviews)

Kit Carson was a famous hunter, trapper, mountain man, guide - an American icon. Stories about him abounded in popular contemporary literature, but most was pure fiction. This work is the authorized biography, much of it in his own words. It was first published right around the time of his death. (Summary by Lynne Thompson)

Kit Carson

(4 stars)

First my thanks to the readers. The book is of historical value. But seems to drag on. A very anticlimactic ending.
