Subtitle: Daughter of the Pathfinder General John C. Fremont and Jessie Benton Fremont His Wife

She was the daughter of two of the most famous Americans of her day. Her father, General John C. Fremont, was known as The Pathfinder and was a presidential candidate in 1856. Her mother, Jesse Benton Fremont, was the daughter of a powerful senator, the true partner of her husband, and a successful author. Elizabeth Benton Fremont lived an extraordinary life with her parents. 

These are her reminiscences of traveling across America, visiting with royalty in Europe, and sharing in the excitement of her parents' careers. Writing with vivacity and her mother's talent for a phrase, Elizabeth recalls pioneer California and Arizona, as well as seeing Queen Victoria at the theater in London. She visited Yosemite on horseback, met Indians, and lived in beautiful Prescott, Arizona while her father was governor there. This is a valuable record of the life of her famous parents as well as of the times. Every memoir of the American West provides us with another view of the movement that changed the country forever.
