The Pathfinder of the American West – review

John C. Fremont: The Life and Legacy of the Legendary American Explorer Known as The PathfinderJohn C. Fremont: The Life and Legacy of the Legendary American Explorer Known as The Pathfinder by Charles River Editors

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Before the dawn of civilization set on the American West
With metal horses and electrical messages and gold mines,
The braveheart John Charles Fremont opened unpathed trails,
Uncharted rivers, and undreamed regions of the unknown
Crossing from the east of the Appalachians to the west of the Rockies,
Following the watery highways of the west of the Mississippi rivers
Enduring the perils of nature and hostilities of the ancient tribes
Defying the temptations of returning to civilization with all might
In the discovery of new hopes, new opportunities, and new beginnings
For those wishing for a surrendering of old yesterdays and a trust in new tomorrows.
