I like being able to check my account, but either the application has some serious problems or this bank does. Transactions pull and move around to various dates for some reason. I also had a glitch where getting into this application and on to the www service at various times would trigger double payments and that was extremely difficult to fix. It pays to be extremely extremely cautious when using mobile banking.
This book is thin and more like a pamphlet or an old west dime novel. That may appeal to some. There isn't a lot of info on Bridger. The book includes recollections from people who had met and spent some time with the popular guide/scout. It was interesting enough, but isn't much of a book.
I read this after being inspired to read several frontier/mountain man books after seeing and reading the most latest THE REVENANT. I didn't like how the latest book played down the story of Jim Bridger and created him merely a side kick to the tale. He was surely a bigger player in the is book is the story that puts Jim out to the masses and created his legend known. Maybe there is some false swagger added to his tale, but alas don't all of these mountain man books do that for their main character?I enjoyed this book and recommend it to you and all who seek stories of the mountains and the men who lived their lives in them.
I only decided to read this book because one of our local elementary schools is named after him. This book just covered the basics of his life. It did not tell about the man, who he really was, just what he accomplished. I'm sure there could be much more to tell
I did not realize that this was an old biography of Jim Bridger. It was outdated and did not present a high level of historical research, but was interesting. Short, but gives a glimpse of the highlights of one of the best known mountain men of the 19th century West.
Joe Bridger was a rare person. Although not formally educated, he did display remarkable intelligence, learning several languages, learning how to survive in the wilds, and evidently he had a remarkable memory capable of forming detailed topological maps in his mind and keeping the info for years. For someone to survive all those years in the mountains with risky Indians and wildlife, and living off the land for meal shelter and clothing takes more than om Wikipedia: James Felix Bridger (March 17, 1804 – July 17, 1881) was among the foremost mountain men, trappers, scouts and tutorials who explored and trapped the Western United States during the decades of 1820–1850, as well as mediating between native tribes and encroaching whites. He was of English ancestry, and his family had been in North America since the early colonial period.Jim Bridger had a powerful constitution that allowed him to survive the extreme conditions he encountered walking the Rocky Mountains from what would become southern Colorado to the Canada–US border. He had conversational knowledge of French, Spanish and several native languages. He would come to know a lot of of the major European American explorers of the early west, including Kit Carson, George Armstrong Custer, Hugh Glass, John Frémont, Joseph Meek, and John Sutter. Bridger was a young contemporary of British and American pathfinders including Peter Skene Ogden, Jedediah Smith, and William Sublette. In 1830, Smith and his associates sold their fur company to Bridger and his associates naming it the Rocky Mountain Fur Company. Bridger was part of the second generation of mountain men and pathfinders who explored the American West that followed the Lewis and Clark expedition in 1804.

I have been in Fort Bridger a number if times and had heard of the man, and his name comes up in the a lot of other historical books of the West I have read. He is an icon of the West and thought I enjoyed the book my value of the man greatly decreased. He had an abnormal dislike of the Indians, who had a amazing respect for him, and used his knowledge and friendship with the Indians to support destroy them. Though he disliked the Indians so much he married three Indian women; the first two died young. So, the book, though worth reading, did not support the iconic photo of Jim.
A good,quick read on the most necessary mountain man in the American West. Most of the book is anecdotes from the people who knew “Old Jim Bridget” as he was called. A lot of interesting info about the early 1830’s to 1860’s —-before the discovery of gold and before the Civil War,when much of the American West was location owned by the American Natives and unmapped or charted by white men. Fascinating story, though be prepared to take some of the anecdotes with a grain of salt!
I wanted to learn about Jim Bridger, one the West's amazing legends. This short book gives the reader info about his life, experiences, etc. in the West. As with most Western legends, not a lot is known his everyday life, but only general facts and overviews are known and are given in the book. This book happy my desire to learn more about Jim Bridger.
An honest & credible look at a major figure of 19th century lore & the western frontier. A lot of anecdotal remembrances of people who personally knew and relied upon this mountainman & scout. The legend comes alive through the eyes of those who rode beside him.
The only regret I have is that ol’ Jim never learn to read or write. If he had, we would probably be able to read more of his exploits and adventures. He gets a rare mention in the stories of Thomas Fox, and of Hugh Monroe “Rising Wolf” (by the prolific writer James Willard Schultz. Those two lived with the Piegan Blackfeet (Pikuni), and Jim with the Crows, who were mortal enemies. Probably the reason Jim is mentioned so seldom in Shultz’ stories. Going to test to search more stories about ol’ Jim, an awesome real hero of the frontier days.
I question why permissions are what they are... (I want this review would hold my formatting!) I am installing this on my nook smartphone but have some reservations regarding the Permissions... Why does it need access to my Photos/Media/Files/external storage and/or my Camera/Microphone? We'll see how this works... ----- Well, installed and went to log in. Got to the Secure Access Code but cannot obtain the keyboard to pop-up. Whether it's the application or the tablet, usually it pops up when I tap a 'field'. Nope.
Very amazing app, especially with the updates. Only issue I have with it may be due to me having an older phone. Sometimes it closes out and I have to begin it again. I definitely recommend it to anyone with a BoM account. It looks clean, modern and simple. Everything I wish in a banking app.
If you have this application and the application is gray with a red logo. DO NOT UPDATE. I did and haven't been able to log on to my acc in about 3 months now. I called the hot line and they gave me no answer, no help. I want I never updated my application so I would be able to use it. 😩😩
