FORTY YEARS A FUR TRADER ON THE UPPER MISSOURI
The memoirs of the son of French immigrants who settled in Maryland, Larpenteur was so eager to see the real American West that he talked himself into a job with the Rocky Mountain Fur company in 1833. He lived during a time of transition and decline in the business, and his vivid recital of his personal affairs often seems to bear out his feeling that he was "born of misfortune."
