Summary
Portrayed by past historians as the greatest guide and Indian fighter in the West, Kit Carson has become in recent years a historical pariah--a brutal murderer who betrayed the Navajos, and an unwitting dupe of American expansion, and a racist. Many historians now question both his reputation and his place in the pantheon of American heroes. Here we are urged to reconsider Carson yet again. Carson was a man of the nineteenth century, whose racial views and actions were much like those of his contemporaries

Summary
Kit Carson has been portrayed in the past as a hero and in more recent times as a brutal murderer who betrayed the Navajos. Dunlay, a freelance writer and historian, argues that historians have too often set their minds on elevating or suborning Carson's reputation and have paid little attention to the man himself. He demonstrates that Carson was involved with Indians in many different kinds of relationships, from marriage to war, and that Carson was capable of complex and seemingly contradictory feelings toward various Indian groups. Includes b&w historical photos and illustrations. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
