Description

Over the Rocky mountains, up and down the Missouri and Columbia rivers, Indian trade and treachery, shipwrecks and starvation, the cold, cold winters, the desolate plains, and the dreaded grizzly bear--this story follows a group of American pioneers shrugging off hardships of every kind to strike it rich off some beaver skins.
