This is Part 2! If you have not already done so, give Part 1 a listen!

As the Liver-Eater's reputation grew he began working as a guide for prospectors and a scout for General Miles, against the Lakota, Cheyenne, and Nez Perce. Later he'd take jobs in law enforcement in Coulson and Red Lodge, Montana, work in a Wild West Show, and even grow cabbages! And Johnson's story doesn't even end when he dies! Was Robert Redford really one of Johnson's pallbearers? Did he really have a Crow wife? Did he ever actually kill any Crow warriors? Could he have possibly been born in 1841? Did he really lasso a whale???? Find out all this and more on this "You've come far, pilgrim" part 2 edition of Bloody Beaver Podcast!
