Rose was captured by Indians, but escaped." Rose and Joe Lewis started from Pennsylvania to become fur trappers with the Nathaniel J.Wyeth's St. Louis Company. Rose later joined Jim Bridger, Milton Sublette, Kit Carson, Joe Meek, Bill Williams, and others, trapping and trading all over the Rocky Mountains and Oregon country. His journal forms a collateral journal in conjunction with some few known accounts of the times. A very good copy offered in a cloth clamshell box with leather label stamped in gilt on the spine.
