Description


The 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. Yet just a short time later, they had already established a booming fur trade, a thriving and unique rural culture, and legendary characters like Jim Bridger and Kit Carson. Thrilling and educational, and packed with hundreds of full-color photographs, The Mountain Men details every facet of the extraordinary history and lifestyle of these remarkable men, including their weapons, their traps and methods, the culture they developed, their cuisine, and their encounters with Native Americans.
