I am giving this book the fifth star because of its honesty. The first four stars are earned for the jam-packed action, decent writing, the author's verve, and compassion. Expect a blitz presentation without chapters, but rather the writing rolls out as if off a roller pin. However, it's cherished above most of the similar hundred autobiographical accounts of the era.

The one other reviewer (so far) gave it only two stars because he states flatly that "it isn't true". (I wonder how he could make such a flat statement, because it has been almost 200 years since the experiences related in the book occurred.) Whether or not a person would use the book for historical reference material (I wouldn't) would be a matter of individual choice.
As a lifelong reader of Old West lore I found the book most enjoyable - so much so that it was hard to put down. And besides, I like a good yarn and depend on my intelligence and experience to judge the degree of exaggeration (if any) involved. And if a little fiction is mixed in with the truth, it spoils my enjoyment not at all.
"Truth" and "fact" are two different things. There can be an element of illustrative truth in even a tall tale, as in the old westerner who related that he "saw a cloud of dust going up a dry river bed and thought he was about to be attacked by Indians - but no, it was only a school of Arizona trout going upstream to spawn". Factual? Not likely. Illustrative truth? Oh yeah, as one who has lived in dry southern Arizona for 25 years can attest.
So my recco to the prospective buyer is this: Read it and enjoy without being concerned about such matters as truth/fact/fiction/exaggeration. In my opinion, the essential essence of those early dangerous days related in this book is truth.

I loved the book. This is a story of a man that is almost unknown in American History. Should be read by students of early American history.
Thank you.

It was a great read and I learned a lot about my own State, in it's early years. Some is a little "hinky", but I know enough about our history to see through the "baloney". Overall, it had some really great history and I was impressed.
Lengthy detailed landscape description including narrative of relationships with Indians. Informative but not very interesting. The publisher had many disclaimers on the authenticity of the editor.
