Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
An overall interesting book that takes you right into the heart of the mountains, along old Indian trails, through fire ravaged forests and across flooded rivers. We are introduced to the native mountain wildlife, everything from mosquitos to bears and everything in between. We also meet some of the people that have the mountains and the foothills as their home including a psuedo hermit used to living in the wilds for months on end tending his trapline.

While informative it also tends to lean at times to the tedious side as is the nature of daily journals when at times nothing happens that is out of the ordinary or hasn't happened already. The footnote set up is also a bit awkward as there are many that are integral to the story but they're placed at the back of the book forcing you to constantly flip away from the story and to the back in order to get the information you need. It would have been more convenient to have them listed at the bottom of the page for instant referral.

I would certainly recommmend this book for anyone that ls interested in the Rockies or travelling by packhorse as well as those interested in mountain wildlife and the history of the area. Some may use it as a reference guide if they mountain hike or spend time on horses in the area.

As for me, once is enough and I've passed it on to a friend already.
