WCHS Joseph R. Brown: Adventurer on the Minnesota Frontier Hardcover book by Nancy & Robert Goodman. Adventurer, in reference to Joseph Renshaw Brown, includes careers as soldier, fur trader, entrepreneur, lumberman, founder of cities, politician, speculator, legislature, editor, Indian agent, Minnesota promoter, opportunist and optimist. He was there when Minnesota was the roaring frontier. He often found himself 200 miles from the law, a newspaper or a road. He was praised, denounced, investigated, applauded, threatened and shot at. He was married three times, to part-Indian women, and through their connections became influential among the Sioux and Chippewa, equally at home in a tribal council and territorial legislature. He was not universally loved. He could try a case, bring in a murderer, defy the army, update the books, boss a logging crew, draft a bill, break a head, shoot a bear, baptize an infant, and manipulate a legislature. 0 stars, based on 0 reviews 0 5
