Overview

Great American mythology truly does lie in these pages. This book tells the tale about how Jedediah Smith, accompanied by his equally fabled faithful friend the Laredo Kid, entered the supreme hero's pantheon.
It's a comedy with a high body count as it explores how he overcame several heartrending tragedies to become a famed Nauga hunter, then notorious small town sheriff; Badlands cattle rancher and finally the most famous US Marshall ever. This book deeply delves into his great romances, and then what the fates befell him after his glory years. This history is his story with all its warts and wonder.
