Rendezvous Reader


Tall, Tangled, and True Tales of the Mountain Men


The accounts of the mountain men are spun form the experiences of a nation moving westward: a trapper returns from the dead; hunters feast on buffalo intestines served on a dirty blanket; a missionary woman is astounded by the violence and vulgarity of the trappers’ rendezvous. These are just  a few of the narratives, tall tales, and lies that make up A Rendezvous Reader.
