The exciting adventures of Black cowboys, pioneers, soldiers, and other frontiersmen join the celebrated folklore of the wild West in the Reflections of a Black Cowboy series. Through colorful, masterfully crafted vignettes that rival tall tales of the old frontier, author Robert H.

Reviews - What do customers think about Reflections of a Black Cowboy: Mountain Men (Reflections of a Black Cowboy)?

The Kirkus Review up above is incorrect  Jul 31, 2006
This is book #4, not book #3. The format is the same - an old black cowboy is telling stories to his old dog about Blacks in the early history of the United States - a long-ignored area of history. This series sheds some much-needed light and avoids being preachy.

The information is solid and written in an active style - aimed at and just about perfect for 6-9th grade boys. It is written in a historical fiction style, rather than a biographical style. The average story is about 20 pages long. Each story has a picture.

Book #4 features Mountain Men:
-'Esteban and the Seven Cities of Gold'
-Jean Baptiste Du Sable: Founder of Chicago
-Jim Beckwourth: Mountain Man and Indian Chief
-George McJunkin: Scholar and Cowboy
