Trails of the Pathfinders by G. B. Grinnell
This book focuses on the stories of the earliest English Speaking explorers of the American wilderness, several of who pre-dated Lewis and Clark. Using original journals as sources, these stories tell of traders, trappers and others who traveled into Indian territory when it was still wild, and paved the way for later settlers. The expeditions recounted in this book range from those of Alexander Henry in the 1770's, to Fremont's journey to California in the 1840's.
