Wah-to-yah and the Taos trail
This journal, more than any other I've read, gives the most insight into the era of the trapper and mountain man. Grizzard lived it and dutifully recorded it. His description of the Cheyenne puppy roast and the hangings of the Taos rebels are (especially the latter) chillingly described in heart rending and morbid detail. If you've ever wondered what this life was like on a day to day basis then this book is for you.
