Summary
"Long the dominant icon embodying the spirit of America's frontier past, the image of the cowboy no longer stands alone as the ultimate symbol of independence and self-reliance. The great canvas of the western landscape--in art, books, and film, including 2016's Leonardo DiCaprio hit movie The Revenant--is today shared by the figures called Mountain Men. They were the trappers of the Rocky Mountain fur trade in the years following Lewis and Clark's Expedition of 1804-1806. The Greatest Mountain Men Stories Ever Told presents in one book many of the most engaging and revealing portraits of mountain men ever written."--Provided by publisher
