Captain Bonneville felt somewhat uneasy under the responsibility of this magnanimous but costly appellation; and began to fear he might be involved in a second interchange of pledges of friendship. Numerous fresh trails, and various other signs, persuaded Captain Bonneville that there must be a considerable village of Nez Perces in the neighborhood; but as his worthy companion, the old chief, said nothing on the subject, and as it appeared to be in some way connected with his secret operations, he asked no questions, but patiently awaited the development of his mystery. As they journeyed on, they came to where two or three Indians were bathing in a small stream.

I have been attracted books to the fur trading days and early America since I took The Big Sky by A.B. Guthrie off my dad's bookcase and read it years ago. I also really enjoyed L Ron Hubbard's first full length novel Buckskin Brigades set during this era so when I was recently how Washington Irving was a gifted storyteller I chose this out of his titles though this is non fiction to the best of the authors experience and abilities I believe.

I am glad I read it. The language took a bit of work being written back around 1834 so I had to used my dictionary a bit to get rolling.

The descriptions of the land and travels are truly interesting with the vast buffalo herds, bighorn sheep, elk, antelope, beaver salmon and game in abundance. The interactions with many native american tribes were interesting. There are accounts of stupid acts of cruelty as well as feats of nobility and courage. There is one lovely retelling of a squaw who has done her duties unthanked or unnoticed by her husband that is pretty straight up an injustice that anyone could see is plainly unfair and her case made simply, unlike our current talk show fiascos where people just scream at each other.

This story is a good look by a talented writer of an interesting time and adventure.

Excellent book about the exploration of the old west. Irving obtained Bonneville's journals and diaries to write this comprehensive book about his journeys in the old west. I'm sure Irving probably fictionalized some of this book but I believe it is by and large a mostly true account of Captain Bonneville's exploration of the old west. Also much about the different Indian tribes they encountered. If you like to read about his time period you should like this book. Irving does use a lot of words that are not used today. I spent time looking up many of these words but it was well worth the extra effort.

This first hand account of the adventures of captain Bonneville is a harrowing ride through the old west, the harsh and brutal nature of life back then is plain. But so is the remarkable endurance of the captain and his men, his sense of justice and integrity. The description of the scenery makes for great reading. Highly recommend.

Someone should have duct taped W. Irving's fingers together. This loses its historic impact due to the excessive and continuous use of superlatives. There is some great information here on the changing west, but this volume is irritating.
Jox
I highly recommend this book and others like it to anyone interested in the history of our country. I enjoy books written during the actual times because the picture is a more accurate one than historical revisionist like to write years later.
Unnis
Surprisingly compelling narrative with revealing historic and personal details. Love it!
Thoroughly enjoyed reading about the explorations of Capt. Bonneville. What an intrepid man! I have traveled many of the places he explored in Wyoming, Idaho and Oregon and it amazes me that he was able to cover that ground on horseback and on foot in the winter. This book gives you an appreciation for the dangerous life of the earlier explorers and trappers.
