BERTINO JIM BRIDGER: Mountain Man, a biography by Stanley Vestal. 333 pp. A Bison Book by University of Nebraska Press. Third Bison Book printing: Aug. 1971. In the preface to his biography of Jim Bridger, famed mountain man of the Western civilization period, author Stanley Vestal says "On the one hand, he (Bridget) was represented in fiction and on the screen as a drunken, loutish polygamist and liar... On the other hand, Jim Bridger's real achievements have been ignored or neglected by writers. There has been no adequate biography to bring the man to life . . . (His) glorious memory needs no false glamour. The man was greater than his legend. "His true character equires no defense and no apology. Few men in history have been more uniformly trusted and re- specked, or have shown them- selves more hospitable or generous. His skill and knowledge (of his beloved mountains) opened the way for the trappers, the railroad men, the cowboys and the settlers." This is Jim Bridger's story of over 60 years as mountain man, scout for military troops and guide for wagon trains crossing the open enemy territory of the Sioux, Cheyenne and other hostile Indian tribes. The lean, six-foot hunter and explorer discovered Great Salt Lake in 1824 (at the age of 20), the South Pass for the Em- migrant Trail, explored the wonders of the Yellowstone, founded Fort Bridger, opened the Overland Route, guided Army units in surveys and Indian campaigns. Even among the mighty mountain men, Jim Bridger was a towering figure. Fur trapper and Indian fighter extraordinary, he was one of the greatest explorers and pathfinders in American history. "If ever a man earned that title," Vestal says, "Jim Bridger may be called a pioneer."
