About George Ruxton

About The Author George Frederick Ruxton (1821-1848) was a British explorer and travel writer. He was a Lieutenant in the British Army, received a medal for gallantry from Queen Isabella II of Spain, was a hunter and explorer and published papers and books about his travels to Africa, Canada, Mexico and the United States. He observed the westward expansion of the United States in the 1840s during the period when the country's government was pursuing its policy of manifest destiny. He was the first author to write -extensively- of the mountain men of the Rocky Mountains. Ruxton served in the 89th (The Princess Victoria's) Regiment of Foot in Canada. Intrigued by the lives of Native Americans and trappers on the open prairie, Ruxton sold his Lieutenant commission in the British Army and became a hunter in Upper Canada.show more
