The River of the West: The Mountain Years(2015)
(The first book in the Adventures of Joe Meek series)
A non fiction book by Win Blevins and Frances Fuller Victor
Joe Meek was one of the West's most irresistible characters. An early mountain man, he was dashing, devil-may-care, cheeky, irreverent, and more fun than a playful grizzly cub.In Book One, we read about his early life adventuring in the Rocky Mountains, California, and the Southwest. His first-hand account of fur-traders is priceless, as are his descriptions of the country, mountains, and the life of a mountain man.Meek comes down to us not as a myth but as 'simply a right kind of fella.' It is our good luck that Joe knew how to yarn his mountain experiences truly and colorfully and with only a mite of stretching. Joe Meek tells his own story, straight up and in the raw. He's one wild ride!
