Living in the areas this book traces gives it more meaning for me. Knowing one of the authors makes it very special.
One person found this helpful. However, it is a pretty unique tale. I wanted more details as to Ogden's actual life with the Indians and the book doesn't provide much detail on that. It did clue me in to some American history around the time of the Revolutionary War, so that was interesting.
It's too bad this book is so expensive everywhere.
