Fascinating book. James Gilchrist Swan(1818-1900) was a pioneer in the Washington Territory. Ivan Doig has taken bits and pieces of Swans journals and followed his footsteps adding his own commentary along the way. Swans full journals have yet to be published so this is a peek into Swans life.

I found only one thing that frustrated me. I would have liked dates instead of day one, day two at the beginning of the adventures. It would have given clarification to the journal.
