The guy who wrote this book was a bare foot kid who Kit Carson took under his wing and became a man.Life of George Druillard, scout, interpreter, hunter for Lewis and Clark. Closer to facts remake of John Johnston - Liver Eatin Johnson and a proper historical based story of Hugh Glass. The Battle of San Jacinto. The early trapper days of Kit Carson. Jedediah Strong Smith's story. Joe Meek the merry mountain man. History of Bent's Fort. So many possibilities to choose from but get a director who is a historian and muzzle loading shooter and hunter-trapper-soldier whose reply to suggestions of authenticity is not "this is a movie, not a documentary."
