Wigeon Publishing Launches 4th Edition of Food & Provisions of the Mountain Men

Food & Provisions of the Mountain Men: A Guide to Authentic Provisions of Fur Trappers, Traders and Explorers in the Early American West

This fourth edition of Food & Provisions of the Mountain Men: A Guide to Authentic Provisions of Fur Trappers, Traders and Explorers in the Early American West includes twelve additional pages and more illustrations.

The additional information comprises an expanded section on honey and bee hunters, a recipe for mule-blood soup, and more first-hand accounts of the “starvin’ times” as well as the “shinin’ times.”

Author Larry “Friar” Edwards created this guide for those who participate in re-enactments of mountain man rendezvous and historical encampments. However, it’s also for anyone interested in history, and the lifestyles and hardships endured by these adventurous folks at a time when beaver fur was worth more than gold.
