Harriet Freiberger lived down river from the town where Lucien Maxwell grew up, viewing the western horizon as he did from a high bluff that overlooked the mighty Mississippi.

Not until moving to the same shining mountains where Lucien traveled with John Fremont did she realize whose footsteps she had followed. Then, from Cimarron to Taos, Saint Louis, and Bent’s Fort, she pursued this man from an earlier time. Now, having returned from the nineteenth century, Harriet lives in Northwest Colorado’s Elk River Valley.
