by Charles Fletcher Lummis

By the dying coals I could see two savage eyes above me, glowing weirdly. My rifle stood in a corner; but the ponderous Remington was at my belt, and I “turned loose” into the darkness about those two little balls of angry fire. There was a blood-curdling screech and something came crashing to the floor and began scrambling toward the window. I pulled the trigger again, but there was only a dull click.

In 1884, with a job offer to become City Editor of the Los Angeles Times, Charles Fletcher Lummis determined to walk to his new job from Ohio, covering over 3,500 miles through 8 states and territories. He witnessed and documented the end of the old American West and the beginning of the modern age, which picked new winners and losers. In this first person narrative, never before recorded as an audio book, Lummis describes the invasion of the West by investors, forcing out small miners and ranchers. He sees the last of the buffalo, is nearly murdered by prisoners, visits the Southwest Indian pueblos before there were highways, befriends a dog who goes mad, performs self surgery while alone in the wild, is nearly frozen in a blizzard and meets the great colorful characters of the American West.

Adventurous author, pioneering reporter, workaholic newspaper editor, passionate Indian rights activist, librarian, poet, anthropologist, and archeologist, Charles Fletcher Lummis was great colorful individualist who explored and popularized the American Southwest.

Travel with him and hear in his own words this extraordinary adventure.
