Description
From the turn of the 19th century, in the wake of Lewis and Clark, pioneering mountain men entered the uncharted American wilderness with nothing but their wits, their survival skills, and what few tools they could carry along with them in search of beaver pelts. They soon established a booming fur trade and a thriving and unique rural culture, and gave us legendary characters like Jim Bridger and Kit Carson. By 1840 they were all but gone. This companion to The Gunfighters, The Cowboys, and The Wild West details the extraordinary history of the mountain men, from their weapons and traps to their encounters with Native Americans, illustrated with 350 photos and drawings.
