Presenter: Richard Rhone, retired history instructor We will separate legend from reality as we look at one of the most infamous and most enigmatic characters that existed in the American Wild West.

Today we aren’t sure of much of his life, but two things we know as absolute facts: his name was not Jeremiah Johnson and he certainly didn’t look like Robert Redford. Let’s try to separate the fact from the fiction.
