Morgan has written a very detailed account of the opening of the West by the early Mountaim Men and trappers. Using what written documents he could find, he tells us about rivers and valleys discovered, battles with Indians, numbers of beaver pelts brought into St. Louis and first contact of American explorers with the Spanish in California. The other purpose of this book is to document the life of Jedediah Smith who the author claims is the most important explorer of the West after Lewis & Clark.
