Description: Between 1842 and 1854 John C. Fremont, renowned as the nineteenth century's greatest explorer, and Kit Carson, the legendary scout, boldly ventured into untamed territory to fulfill America's "manifest destiny". A Newer World tells the dramatic history of their campaigns and the repercussions that continue to haunt America.

Drawing on little-known primary sources, as well as his own travels through the lands Fremont and Carson explored, David Roberts recreates their expeditions in a harrowing narrative of hardship, adventure, and glory. His portrayal of the boastful, outspoken, but undeniably intrepid Fremont, the most famous man of his day, is an important act of historical rediscovery. His unforgettable portrait of the illiterate mountain man Kit Carson's transformation from guiltless Indian fighter into an Indian advocate is this book's crowning achievement.

A splendid reconstruction of a major turning point in American history, A Newer World portrays the triumph of opening the West without ever letting us forget the cultural tragedy that this inflicted on the Native American.
