In his concise, richly detailed memoir My Sixty Years on the Plains, fur-trapper W. T. Hamilton - also known as "Wildcat Bill"-gives the listener a first-hand account of life outdoors in the Old West. From trailblazing to trading with Indians, Hamilton relates how a mountain man relied on his wits and specialized knowledge in order to survive the inhospitable environments.

Pretty good

I enjoyed this, and enjoy about learning about this time in history. It's a good book, but it wasn't memorable enough to give it 5 stars. Still, good enough that I recommend it.
