Reshaw was an entrepreneur.  The young American West was changing fast and he jumped on opportunities before most ever recognized them.  He was fearless, always on the edge of danger.  He was a frontiersman, trader, whiskey smuggler, bridge builder, rancher, merchant, interpreter and scout, a reliable friend and ruthless barterer.  A scoundrel to some, he had his own code of ethics and helped shape our American West. His well-documented story is told in this Spur Award winning book.
