1912. Being the adventures, in the years 1842-43-44, on trail over mountains and through deserts from the East of the Rockies to the West of the Sierras, of Scout Christopher Carson and Lieutenant John Charles Fremont, leading their brave company including the boy Oliver. Sabin proudly points out that he rooted the narrative in the journals of exploring expeditions commanded by Fremont and advised by Kit Carson as transmitted by the Secretary of War to the Senate and House and published as government documents. Sabin emphasized that Oliver Wiggins, one of his characters, is real. Sabin said he had talked with Wiggins and he was the little boy under the wagon, and he was the Taos lad who won the Kit Carson rifle; he was upon the Fremont and Carson First Expedition, and he was upon the Second Expedition by way of the Salt Lake to Fort Hall.
