Dive into the history and reflections of some of the most influential trappers of all time!
Join well known outdoorsman Tom Miranda as he tells the stories of the "Master Trappers". The book begins in the infancy of the North America's exploration and chronicles the men who build the trapping industry from the native trappers to French Traders weaving a history through the mountain men, pioneer trappers, cottage industry trappers and much more.
There are detailed biographies of many of the most productive and innovative trappers of all time. Some biographies & trappers included are: Kit Carson, Jim Bridger, Jedediah Smith, Hugh Glass, Hudon's Bay Co., Newhouse, Dailey, Butcher, Arnold, Harding, Lenon, Hawbaker, Nelson and many, many more. The knowledge and history in this book is mind boggling!
Artfully woven through the text is a detailed biography of Tom Miranda, from his schoolboy trapline days to flying his South Dakota long-line and subsequent rise to ESPN Outdoor TV fame and bowhunting career.
Master Trappers may be the most comprehensive trapping book written in the last 50 years.
