An Interview with Richard Ashburn.
“Mr. Ashburn how long have you been a mountain man?”
“And what initially drew you to it?”
“Probably my love of nature, I’m very intrigued just by the whole era, and I appreciate that it was before the genocide of the Indians. It was trade not battle, there was no war…there was peace. I also love the education on the harmony with nature and the earth…it’s sort of a spiritual aspect for me. Also I’ve always sort of been a mountain man, I love horses and was a professional outfitter for 25 years.”
