The Adventures of the Mountain Men: True Tales of Hunting, Trapping, Fighting, Adventure, and Survival Kindle Edition
The mountain men” were the hunters and trappers who fiercely strode the Rocky Mountains in the early to mid-1800s. They braved the elements in search of the skins of beavers and other wild animals, to sell or barter for goods. The lifestyle of the mountain men could be harsh, existing as they did among animals, and spending most of their days and nights living and camping out in the great unexplored wilds of the Rockies. Life outdoors presented many threats, not least among them Native Americans, who were hostile to the mountain men encroaching on the area for their own purposes. For a certain kind of pioneer, this risk and more were outweighed by the benefits of living free, without the restrictions and boundaries of civilized” settlements.
Included in this collection are tales from great writers, including:
Francis Parkman Jr.
And many more!
