It is the hope of the authors that all who read this may some day enjoy the feeling of seeing the land before them from on top of a fine cayuse, wearing full buck skins and cradling their trusty rifle across the saddle bow, with trusted brothers as their campfire companions.
This book is a compilation of some of the old-time “horse sense,” re-learned and practiced today by the Montana Brigade of the American Mountain Men known as the Upper Missouri Outfit. These men are dedicated to recreating the use of the horse in their fur trade activities. It is an ongoing effort and undergoes constant revision as the skills and knowledge are tested on rides and pack trips throughout the Rocky Mountains.
