Uncle Dick Wootton: The Pioneer Frontiersman of the Rocky Mountain Region
Name Uncle Dick Wootton: The Pioneer Frontiersman of the Rocky Mountain Region
Author Howard Lewis Conard
Description Uncle Dick Wootton's tale spans a broad chunk of the 19th century American frontier. Originally a mountain man, Uncle Dick ran the gamut of wild west professions: he was a scout, hunter, trapper, trader, freighter, and rancher. He narrowly escaped death on numerous occasions and he was an avid Southern sympathizer during the Civil War. Full of humor, Uncle Dick's memoirs include a description of "Hobnobbing with Brigham Young" and spooky tales of headless senoritas. Truly an encyclopedia of life on the southwestern frontier.
