ZZ-Mountain Man

Lewis and Clark's 'Corps of Discovery' (1804-'05) brought back reports of the wild game and fur-bearing animals in the Rocky Mountains. Several fur companies were interested in harvesting these resources.

Finding few Native Americans interested in trapping, these companies hired frontiersmen to obtain the pelts. These trappers became known as "mountain men." They roamed throughout the wild areas of the Rocky Mountains and on to the coastal regions in search of fur-bearing animals.
