by John Sunder. Softbound, 278 pages, 5" x 8". A hardy mountainman, Bill Sublette spent ten years hunting, trapping, fighting Indians and exploring the western mountains. He helped develop the rendezvous system, prove the use of wagons on the Oregon Trail and helped establish what was to be Ft. Laramie and Kansas City. More than a semi-wild hunter, Sublette became a very successful fur merchant and helped break the Astor monopoly on the trade. The authorís gift with bringing life to long past events produces a story with breath-catching excitement that still illuminates the whole life of this historic American figure.
