By William T. Hamilton, Edited by Douglas W. Ellison
Forgotten since its original publication as a newspaper serial in 1899, this gripping memoir by William T. Hamilton (1822-1908) details an eventful winter hunt from Fort Benton to the Cypress Hills in Canada, led by the incomparable Liver Eater Johnson. Hamilton offers an authentic and representative view of the adventurous life of a mountain man -- or mountaineer, as he preferred.
This book is a perfect companion piece to Hamilton's well-known My Sixty Years on the Plains, first published in 1905.
