In 1828, James Beckwourth wnt on a trapping expedition in the rocky mountains. The Crow Indians captured him thinking he was the child of their chief, so he was adopted by the natives. Soon, Beckwourth became their best warrior and chief. While traveling, he found a reak in the Sierra Nevada. It helped many miners in the gold rush pass the Great Mountains. Now, the trail is called Beckwourth Pass.
