Jim Beckwourth


Jim Beckwourth was an African-American mountain man, trapper, and frontier scout, who lived an adventurous life in the 1800s west. Once calling Plumas County home, he is today recognized as one of the great African-American pioneers in California history. Far from being the gaudy liar he is often made out to be, author Elinor Wilson has produced a exhaustively researched biography of a man of indomitable courage, excellent judgement, and who was without peer in his knowledge of Indian ways. Endnotes, bibilography, index, black and white photos. Paperbound: 248 pages: 5.375 x 8.375"
