One of the best books I have ever read.
Fascinating story of the man who mapped the American West. If you like history with a dash of romance you'll love this book.
Excellent novel for a glimpse into the life of a most colorful personage, John Charles Fremont. A much overlooked person of great historical contribution to the developement of our country . ... both political & expansionist influence.
This is a historically accurate portrayal of the life of John C. Fremont. It cronicals both the bold brave and the conically stupid facets of his life. This is a very good read for those who are interested in our earlier America. I would highly recommend this book
A very good book, but a long one. It is about the life of John C. Fremont who was largely responsible for settling California and the exploration of the area needed for the Transcontinental railroad through the western mountains. The man led a remarkable life, and was a true more modern day explorer who ranks up there with some of the earliest who explored this continent. His wife was also a remarkable and patient woman who was always his greatest promoter. The author has done a great job of researching this period prior to and shortly after the Civil War. Loved this book, but it is a very long one and the parts dealing with the Civil War were a little tedious. Genny
The story of John Charles Fremont and his wife, Jessie Benton Fremont. Blazing trails to the Pacific and back. A great love story and part of a great series by Nevin.
A great historical novel of conquering the western frontier
Very interesting book about the mapping and populating of California - an interesting time in history.
