Firearms, traps & tools of the mountain men Russell, Carl Parcher, 1894-1967


"Bibliography: PP.427-448. The sub-title of the dust-jacket is a guide in picture & text to the equipment of the trappers and fur traders who opened the Old West from the 1820S to the 1840s. The coverage of the subject is much wider than the sub-title indicates, ranging from Indian traps to 20th century knives. Although intended primarily for students of the American West, this scholarly and immensely thorough guide to the artifacts of the trader and early explorer is a valuable handbook."-- Strathern, G. M., & Edwards, M. H. (1970). Navigations, traffiques & discoveries, 1774-1848: A guide to publications relating to the area now British Columbia. Victoria, BC: University of Victoria, p. 257.
