Firearms, Traps, and Tools of the Mountain Men


A Guide to the Equipment of the Trappers and Fur Traders Who Opened the Old West

By Carl P. Russell

This classic history of early-nineteenth-century fur trappers and traders showcases the devices that enabled path-breaking frontiersmen to open the unmapped American West.

Many of the illustrations included were created by the author's own work on the artifacts available: Carl P. Russell examined, measured, sketched, and photographed them himself. In some instances, the rare specimens were loaned from private or public museum collections for inclusion in this history.

Sprinkled with little known fact and lore that fascinate everyone with an interest in the American West, this book, the result of thirty-five years of painstaking research, is the definitive guide to the tools of the mountain men.
