Description

He was known in America and abroad as Kit Carson, but his real name was Christopher Houston Carson. Kit was a rugged, modest man of few words, but his reputation was spread in dime novels, by word of mouth, newspaper stories and government reports until his life story took on mythic proportions. Carson was a mountain man, a fur trapper, an Indian agent and fighter, a U.S. army officer, a wilderness leader & family man. He helped guide the famous expeditions of John C. Fremont across the Oregon Trail. Once he had his biography read to him, the mostly illiterate Carson stated the author “laid it on a leetle too thick.” Come and join us as we separate fact from myth, while we relate the engrossing tale of this fascinating man.
