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 Dicks memoirs include a description of Hobnobbing with Brigham Young and spooky tales of headless senoritas. Truly an encyclopedia of life on the southwestern frontier.
