Levi Hungerford was a young man of Missouri in the 1850’s faced with unknown possibilities as to his future. Leave his father’s home and do what? Life came at him from all directions and his choices were many. Unattached he took younger siblings under his wing and tried to make a good life for them all. Farming was a basic requirement to live but he sought the opportunities of his country’s Manifest Destiny. In short measure he drove supplies to Fort Laramie, cut wood for steamboats on the Mississippi, and quarried limestone in Kentucky. The lure of gold and adventure and drew him across the prairie to California. Then as happened to so many Americans he was drawn into the Civil War. His story is that of life in the mid-19th century, told with breath-taking wonder and awe.
BIOGRAPHY I became an avid reader as a child and have always had several books at hand reading, mostly history and adventure, science fiction and biographies. As a professional airline pilot I spent ten years of my life riding only technical manuals and then one day I said, enough. Let's read something for fun. My writings is now a beloved investment in my retirement years. My love of genealogy and history is used in research. Speciality - Civil War, Indian History and Western History
