American West Public Lecture: Kit Carson and the 19th Century American West – A Legendary Journey of Exploration

Featuring Hampton Sides, editor-at-large of Outside Magazine and bestselling author, in conversation with Ed Roberson, conservation director of Palmer Land Trust and host of the Mountain & Prairie podcast. 

Hampton Sides shared his insights into the life of legendary Kit Carson, a 19th century trapper, military man, and pioneer. Enveloped in mythology, Carson’s story is a wonderful example of the conflict of culture and values that defines 19th Century American West today.
