Bill Sublette (1799-1845) led two lives. Renowned as a hardy mountain man, he ranged the Missouri, Big Horn, Yellowstone, and Sweetwater Rivers from 1823-1833. He unwittingly opened the Oregon Trail to settlers, proving wagons could be used. Financial success caused him to become a businessman, politician, and gentleman farmer in St Louis. He helped develop the Rendezvous system, and break Astor's monopoly. Soft bound, 279 pages.
