James E Parker
I believe the author wrote this book to entertain. He doesn't really go through facts, and gives many accounts of his personal life, how he remembered it. He focuses heavily on the people that he met, and their little quirks. The quote, "Like Hog and Bag, he had come from the hills of Montana and was, for the most part, a silent frontiersman. He could get drunk on three beers. We marveled at this,"(p.121) really exemplifies this. The author continues with this trend for just about every character, introducing them, giving an interesting aspect about them, and then talking about his interactions with them.
