    One thought on “Jedediah Smith and the Opening of the West”

    1. I (can) read fairly fast and do so when I get several library books that show up at once. (You know you have over the last 2 or 3 weeks sent for maybe 7 booksd they all show up on the same day). This is a library book, and still have 5 more waiting or in progress, 7 if you count the audios.This is one I'd liked to have lingered over more. I am what is usually called a "history buff". In other words I have no "degree" but I love history, especially American history. I minored in history and have [...]

    2. Bought this book a few years ago (at the Western Hertiage Museum) when my family and I first watched the series, "Into the West" because I was so struck by what a good Christian man Jedediah Smith was. Got it out again and I'm determined to read it this time.

    3. Jedediah Smith traveled back and forth across the area from St Louis to southern California, to the mouth of the Columbia, and back again. His survival was amazing as was his death near Kenton Oklahoma.

    4. The author does an excellent job of collecting information from many sources and weaving it into an interesting biography of an incredible man.

    5. Interesting history, surprising to see how many names of streams and rivers arise from these early explorers.
