John Simpson Smith was an early fur trapper and spent his entire life on the frontier. He greeted the first settlers on Cherry Creek, Colorado, what is now Denver. He was introduced to the national reading public in Louis Garrard's Wah-to-Yah and the Taos Trail (1848). He was witness to the Sand Creek Massacre, and became familiar enough to have his picture in Harper's Magazine and a listing in the Encyclopedia Britannica. REFERENCE: Clark & Brunet, Arthur H.
