Finding Freedom in a Frontier Life | National Geographic

Meet the American Mountain Men, an invitation-only group of reenactors who are inspired by the fur trade, which flourished in North America from roughly 1800 to 1840. For one week every year, they leave the modern world behind and return to a time when survival meant self-reliance. From roasting buffalo meat over a fire to sharing tips on how best to load a flintlock rifle, these men thrive in one of the last truly wild corners of the West.
