John Capen Adams

$14.95

The Adventures of John Capen Adams - Mountaineer and Grizzly Bear Hunter of California, by Theodore H. Hittell. The man that we knew as Grizzly Adams was born John Capen Adams in Medway, Massachusetts, on October 20th, 1807. He died in Neponset, Massachusetts on October 25, 1860, and was buried in Charlton, Massachusetts. The last quarter of his life was predominately spent in the American west, particularly in the Sierra Nevada mountains of California-Oregon-Washington, and in the Rocky Mountains as well. What follows in this book are his own words, although the original printing came just after his death in 1860. After several attempts at fortune, all ending in financial ruin, he turned instead to the prospect of seeking gold and in 1849 traveled to California for that reason. He soon realized that perhaps the real fortune was in supplying meat to the settlements where the gold seekers were, and thus began what we know as the man called Grizzly Adams. What fascinating tales he provides of his exploits in the mountains of California and Washington, of the Indians that he meets and befriends, the game he kills and captures, of his travels here and there, and his descriptions of the raw lands of California and the prairies to the east. His capture and training of several bear cubs has become legendary. There have been a television series and several films made of this mountain man character. A fascinating set of tales told by the man himself, this book was originally published in 1860, and reprinted in 1861, 1867, and finally in 1911. 6x9, soft cover, 238 pages, illustrated.
