Christopher Carson, Familiarly Known as Kit Carson the Pioneer of the West

by John S. C. Abbott

Christopher Houston “Kit” Carson (1809 – 1868) was an American frontiersman. He was a mountain man (fur trapper), wilderness guide, Indian agent, and U.S. Army officer. Carson became a frontier legend in his own lifetime via biographies and news articles. Exaggerated versions of his exploits were the subject of dime novels.

Carson left home in rural present-day Missouri at age 16 to become a mountain man and trapper in the West. In the 1830s, he accompanied Ewing Young on an expedition to Mexican California and joined fur trapping expeditions into the Rocky Mountains. He lived among and married into the Arapaho and Cheyenne tribes.

In the 1840s, he was hired as a guide by John C. Fremont. Fremont’s expedition covered much of California, Oregon, and the Great Basin area. Fremont mapped and wrote reports and commentaries on the Oregon Trail to assist and encourage westward-bound American pioneers. Carson achieved national fame through Fremont’s accounts of his expeditions.

Under Fremont’s command, Carson participated in the uprising against Mexican rule in California at the beginning of the Mexican-American War. Later in the war, Carson was a scout and courier, celebrated for his rescue mission after the Battle of San Pasqual and for his coast-to-coast journey from California to Washington, DC to deliver news of the conflict in California to the U.S. government. In the 1850s, he was appointed as the Indian agent to the Ute Indians and the Jicarilla Apaches.

During the American Civil War, Carson led a regiment of mostly Hispanic volunteers from New Mexico on the side of the Union at the Battle of Valverde in 1862. When the Confederate threat to New Mexico was eliminated, Carson led forces to suppress the Navajo, Mescalero Apache, and the Kiowa and Comanche Indians.

Carson was breveted a Brigadier General and took command of Fort Garland, Colorado. He was there only briefly: poor health forced him to retire from military life. Carson was married three times and had ten children. The Carson home was in Taos, New Mexico. Carson died at Fort Lyon, Colorado, of an aortic aneurysm on May 23, 1868. He is buried in Taos, New Mexico, next to his third wife Josefa Jaramillo.

Intermittent Fasting: The Complete Guide to Lose and Build Muscle While Eating the Foods you Love

by Andrew Johnson

If you are looking for a new and revolutionary way to lose wait then look no further than the Intermittent Fast Diet! This diet spearheaded by Dr. Mosley, has been scientifically proven to give you results. Those that partake of the intermittent fast take on the view that weight gain is a progressive disease.

If you are gaining a few pounds every single year when you are already overweight, there is no doubt about it, this is a dysfunction of your body, and your metabolism is out of whack. Unlike other diets that treat the symptoms of this weight gain disease the intermittent fast diet goes after the root of the problem.

By fasting intermittently your body is able to survive on a lower caloric intake throughout the weak and as a result of this switch, metabolic changes occur as a result. Normally your body is most likely running on extra carbohydrates as its primary fuel source while it leaves stored fat deposits alone for emergency use, but when you fast, the body switches gears and fat becomes the fuel source, allowing you to burn those dreaded fat deposits directly.

And by fasting every other day your body stays prepped and primed to continue this slow fat burn. This is why after just a few weeks of an intermittent fasting regiment people have seen tremendous results with even the most stubborn of belly fat evaporating under the pressure cooker that has been created due to a steady and controlled intermittent fast.

If you have been struggling with your weight, or if you would just like a healthier lifestyle for you and your family, by all means give this book a try! It only takes a little bit of your time to make your whole life better!

Buy this book and discover how you can:

  • Burn fat faster
  • Reduce caloric intake
  • Make healthier meals
  • And a whole lot more!
