Excerpt from The Life of Kit Carson: The Great Western Hunter and Guide
At the time of Mr. Carson's emigration, Mis~ souri was called Upper Louisiana, being a part of the territory ceded to the United States by France in 1803, and it became a separate State. Under the name of Missouri, in 1821. When Mr. Carson removed his family from Kentucky, and settled in the new territory, it was a wild region, naturally fertile, thus favoring his views as a cultivator; abounding in wild game, and affording a splendid field of enterprise for the hunter, but infested on all sides with Indians, often hostile, and always treacherous.
