<p>The movie <i>Jeremiah Johnson</i> introduced millions to the legendary mountain man, John Johnson. The real Johnson was a far cry from the Redford version. Standing 6'2&quot; in his stocking feet and weighing nearly 250 pounds, he was a mountain man among mountain men, one of the toughest customers on the western frontier. As the story goes, one morning in 1847 Johnson returned to his Rocky Mountain trapper's cabin to find the remains of his murdered Indian wife and her unborn child. He vowed vengeance against an entire Indian tribe. <i>Crow Killer </i>tells of that one-man, decades-long war to avenge his beloved. Whether seen as a realistic glimpse of a long ago, fierce frontier world, or as a mythic retelling of the many tales spun around and by Johnson, <i>Crow Killer</i> is unforgettable. This new edition, redesigned for the first time, features an introduction by western frontier expert Nathan E. Bender and a glossary of Indian tribes.</p>

read the real history ...

read the real history of John Johnson the real mountain man behind the movie. A good read and source for any interested in mountain men. Raymond W. Thorp used Army records, journal entries, newspare accounts and oral histories to compile this biography of Johnson. What results is not only an interesting story of the man, but a fasinating into the lives of the fur trappers.
