Moultonborough Public Library Event Calendar
|Time:||10:30 AM - 12:00 PM|
|Title:||Book Discussion "Blood and Thunder"|
The Friends of the Library book discussion topic will be "Blood and Thunder: An Epic of the American West," by Hampton Sides.
Whether or not Kit Carson as an individual was motivated by the concept of Manifest Destiny is unclear. But, Sides paints a picture of an illiterate who spoke five languages, an “Indian fighter” who had two Native American wives, a military officer and an exceptional tracker whose instinctual knowledge and love of the western landscape was unrivaled among white settlers and explorers.
Extra copies will be available for advance reading.
