PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a 31 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on the Western Expansion in the United States - The Mountain Men. Each of the slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

A mountain man was a trapper and explorer who lived in the wilderness. They were most common in the North American Rocky Mountains from about 1810 through the 1880s, with a peak population in the early 1840s. Approximately 3,000 mountain men ranged the mountains between 1820 and 1840, the peak beaver-harvesting period.

These men were instrumental in opening up the various Emigrant Trails allowing Americans in the east to settle the new territories of the far west by organized wagon trains. Mountain men were trappers, traders, explorers, settlers, occasionally farmers, and often hired scouts who lived of the land.

Like any businessmen, mountain men were primarily motivated by the profit they made trapping for beaver and other skins, then selling or trading the skins. A few were more interested in exploring the West and traded solely to support their passion.

Mountain men were ethnically, socially, and religiously diverse, fitting no real stereotype.
