I did like learning more about what life was like in the west in that time period. There were a lot of details about what they ate, how trappers and hunters conducted themselves, and things like that which were very interesting. I've read several novels about life in the west during that time period, and it was nice to read nonfiction about the same era to see how much of the information in novels is based on fact.
I was screening this book to see if it would be a good book to give to my 12 and 10 year old sons. My conclusion was that if they develop an extreme interest in Kit Carson, the time period, or something like that, I'll recommend it to them. However, I'm not going to just recommend it outright. The reading level is fairly advanced. It's probably at about a ninth grade reading level.
