Mountain Men, Blackpowder Guns and the Fur Trade

This Lübeck Haus Bookstore catalogue page offers books on mountain men, frontiersmen, rendezvous, blackpowder guns and the fur trade.
Early in the nineteenth century, the mountain men emerged as a small but distinctive group of daring men whose experience and knowledge laid the ground work for the opening of the American West. They explored that great expanse of largely known wilderness from the Great Plains and the Eastern slopes of the Rockies, on to the Pacific coast, and South to what is now California and Mexico. Though Lewis and Clark had blazed a narrow corridor of geographical knowledge to the Pacific in 1803-1805, the West remained largely terra incognita until fur trappers and traders, known as mountainmen, such as Jim Bridger, Kit Carson, Tom Fitzpatrick, Benjamin Bonneville, and Jedediah Smith opened paths through the high snow-choked passes of the mountain wilderness of the American West to the fertile valleys of the great rivers that flowed into the Pacific Ocean. Collectively, they came to know every river valley, safe passage route, every stream, mountain pass, source of fresh water, waterless stretch of plain, good hunting and wild game areas, and Indian territory.
Included on this page are books about some of these well know and famous mountain men, frontiersmen, explorers, and trappers, such as Jim Bridger, John Colter, John Johnson, Hugh Glass, Jedediah Smith, Kit Carson, and others.
In addition, several books will be added on muzzleloaders, fur trapping, birch bark canoes, wilderness survival, and other topics relating to the era of the mountain man.
