The movie Jeremiah Johnson introduced millions to the legendary mountain man, John Johnson. The real Johnson was a far cry from the Redford version. Standing 6’2" in his stocking feet and weighing nearly 250 pounds, he was a mountain man among mountain men, one of the toughest customers on the western frontier. As the story goes, one morning in 1847 Johnson returned to his Rocky Mountain trapper’s cabin to find the remains of his murdered Indian wife and her unborn child. He vowed vengeance against an entire Indian tribe. Crow Killer tells of that one-man, decades-long war to avenge his beloved. Whether seen as a realistic glimpse of a long ago, fierce frontier world, or as a mythic retelling of the many tales spun around and by Johnson, Crow Killer is unforgettable. This new edition, redesigned for the first time, features an introduction by western frontier expert Nathan E. Bender and a glossary of Indian tribes.

Before his most fabulous adventure (celebrated by John G. Neihardt in The Song of Hugh Glass and by Frederick Manfred in Lord Grizzly), Hugh Glass was captured by the buccaneer Jean Lafitte and turned pirate himself until his first chance to escape. Soon he fell prisoner to the Pawnees and lived for four years as one of them before he managed to make his way to St. Louis. Next he joined a group of trappers to open up the fur-rich, Indian-held territory of the Upper Missouri River. Then unfolds the legend of a man who survived under impossible conditions: robbed and left to die by his comrades, he struggled alone, unarmed, and almost mortally wounded through two thousand miles of wilderness.

Back in 1803, I was one of those crazy fools who joined Meriwether Lewis and William Clark on their journey across the continent. Back then, every person who knew about our expedition said we were out of our minds. If the natives didnat kill us, the Spanish would, they said. There was no chance of our being successful. Well, we proved them wrong, didnat we? We went up that massive Missouri, crossed the mountains, reached the ocean, and then did it all again in reverse. We werenat killed by the natives and we werenat killed or enslaved by the Spanish. But when President Jeffersonas famed Corps of Discovery floated back down the Missouri to St. Louis in September of 1806, I wasnat with them. Nope, I stayed up there in that wild country to make my fortune. What I ended up making was a legend.
