Details

Meet the fur-clad titans of the American frontier. The mountain men were the trappers of the Rocky Mountain fur trade in the years following Lewis and Clark\92s Expedition of 1804-1806. With their bold journeys peaking during the period of 1830-1840, they were the first white men to enter the vast wilderness reaches of the Rockies in search of beaver \93plews,\94 as the skins were called. They feasted on abundant buffalo, elk, and other game while living the ultimate free-spirited wilderness life\97and they often paid the ultimate price for their ventures under the arrows, tomahawks, and knives of those native Americans whose lands they had entered. Tales of the Mountain Men gathers our nation\92s finest mountain man writing into one riveting volume. Here you\92ll find excerpts of nonfiction classics such as Bernard DeVoto\92s Across the Wide Missouri, as well as selections from such acclaimed novels as A. B. Guthrie Jr.\92s The Big Sky. Whether you\92re an adventure junkie or a history buff, you\92re going to love\97and learn from\97this amazing collection of long-forgotten lore. Paperback, 6"x9", 320 pages
