Image of item

Paperback edition.

This is a historical record of the travels of a trapper who hunted in the Rocky Mountains within a nine-year span between 1834 and 1843. Beginning at the age of 20, Russell Osborne detailed the life of a trapper in his journal and recorded his escapades through treacherous terrain, encounters with wildlife and confrontations with the natives of the Rockies, including those from the tribes of the Snake and Crow Indians. Any who wish to study this period of American history, learn the ways of the trappers from antiquity, or understand the cultures of the native tribes are encouraged to partake in this exciting journey from the perspective of a young trapper during the mid 19th century.
