I’ve been to the Kit Carson home in Taos, watched some episodes of the old TV series of the 50s, read some comic books, visited Bosce Redondo, and have read the accounts of the atrocities attributed to Carson. This book is an amazing account of Carson’s life showing us the good and the bad, allowing us to form our own opinions of this legendary historical western figure.
I recommend it to all who are curious about this man and want to learn the truth. At 21 hours it is a fairly lengthy read, but it covers a lot of history and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The narrator was absolutely excellent, always reading with expression and keeping the listener engaged.
I already read/listened a lot of books on the subject of Native people of the West and the West itself. All were quite good, my all time favorite was Empire off the Summer Moon by Sam Gwynne. But not anymore, this book is pure gold. And even though I listened to it, I think that 21 hour is quite the effort, but it wasn’t at all, I could’ve gone double or even more. That’s how good it was to me and that how fantastic narrator was. Absolutely amazing!
If you like to learn about actual old west legends then this book is for you. Kit Carson life is written out - the good and the bad. The author writes in a way that lets you form your own opinion of Kit Carson.
I thoroughly enjoyed this title. It was fascinating to hear about Kit Carson and all that accompanied this man's life. It also gave such great context to the struggle and disasters around US and Native American relations. the narrator did a wonderful job and I could easily keep on listening to this title the 20+ hrs of listening flew by! Great story and great narration!
