Title

Personal Narrative of James O. Pattie

Description

Heroism and adventure drip from the pages of Pattie’s story of his experiences, as told to Cincinnati magazine editor Timothy Flint, trapping beaver along the Gila, exploring the lower Colorado River, fighting Indians and Mexicans, rescuing damsels in distress, and finally languishing in a California prison. While scholars argue over the veracity of these hair-raising events and Pattie’s role in them, his rousing book still captures readers’ imaginations with its vibrant description of the western wilderness viewed through the romantic lens of American expansionism.
