Nevertheless, this spectacle would allow the frontiersman, who was going from
location to location, to make some money. When the frontiersman would be

frontiersman would ...

Tomorrow I leave the river, but for today there is work to be done. Late yesterday
afternoon, Rick shot a moose. When the arrow hit, the moose thundered off,
crashing through the forest. We followed the blood trail and eventually found it a

immense symmetrical rack, nearly 74 inches across, Rick figured, admiring it as a

both commenced firing round shot at us as soon as their friends retired from their
attack upon us.

1860s between Native Americans and the early American pioneers pushing

key part to its mythology after he met James Hickok, a tracker and frontiersman.
The profile he wrote of Wild Bill Hickok added significantly to one of the iconic
names of the era. His reports earned him a place with the Herald as a war

English as the only official language. Feeling increasingly marginalised and in
constant conflict with the colony, the Afrikaners decided it was time to move on,
and so began the Great Trek.8 'Voortrekker', the Afrikaans and Dutch word for
pioneer, refers to ...
