A buckskinners' rendezvous-with its tipis, smoke-belching rifles, people dressed in buckskins and calico, wooden water casks, trading blankets, and other paraphernalia, looks like an old painting come to life. And in a sense it is, as modern-day buckskinners recreate the Western Fur Trade Era. Buckskins and Black Powder is your passport to that time and place. From it you'll learn about the rendezvous, the men involved, and how they lived. And you'll learn how to become a buckskinner yourself, what kind of equipment you need, what to wear and how to make it, and all the details of primitive camp life. The author has gathered it all together in one volume. the people, the skills, the ambience of an earlier time that is attracting thousands to buckskinning today. He describes the guns used by the early mountain men, and the currently available replicas and reproductions. Other chapters cover powder horns, pouches, clothing, buckskinner's jargon, tomahawks and knives, primitive shelters, trail and camp chow, saddles, rendezvous activities, and more. Well over 100 photographs illustrate rendezvous as it was and is today. In addition, there are reproductions of authentic nineteenth century paintings showing arms, clothing, and activities; patterns and diagrams by Howard Paveglio to help you make your own gear; and pen-and-ink portraits of buckskinners by noted Western artist Dan (Buffler) Brewer. The author explains how bead work is done, how to brain-tan hides and Indianize a gun, how to make moccasins, jerky, a patch knife, a powder measure, a hunting shirt, knife and hawk sheaths, and all the other essentials. This book not only shows you how to do it all, but conveys the spirit of rendezvous and buckskinning in a skillful blending of the old and the present-day.
