""John Charles Fremont (1813-1890) explored the American West at a time when thousands of immigrants were hungry for information and thus became -with the possible exception of Lewis and Clark- the most acclaimed traveler of the nineteenth century in the lands beyond the Missouri River. He married the daughter of a powerful Senator, Thomas Hart Benton, and added the advantages of family influence to his own store of ingenuity, endurance and courage. .."" from the dust jacket.
