Kit Carson (1809 – 1868) was a real-life pulp hero in his own manner, an American frontiersman who braved all manner of danger as he carved out a place in history, opening the western states to all America. He was a fur trapper and wilderness guide, Indian agent, and U.S. Army officer. Few people described pulp protagonists, real and fictional, as well as H. Bedford-Jones (1887-1949), referred to by his contemporaries as "the King of the Pulps".
Originally published in 1939 in the Toronto Star Weekly, and never before reprinted, Young Kit Carson is a he-man adventure of the American frontier, high in the Rocky Mountains. Carson battles to maintain peaceful relations between the Arapaho and Cheyenne tribes, while maintaining order among the fur-trappers competing for precious pelts.
Bold Venture Press presents this forgotten pulp classic through arrangement with Camille “Caz” Cazedessus, publisher of Pulpdom, the legendary journal documenting pulp fiction history prior to 1931.
