As mentioned in our
last issue this is a really exciting time in good literature for the
North AAmerican Frontiersmen Association time frame of 1750 - 1843. I
will try and give you a few good examples of a few books read that feel
are worthy of passing them on to you.
Collection Of Sayings Engraved On
Eighteenth Century American Powder
the years Ron Vail has written many articles for
the Tomahawk and Long Rifle - the official
publication of the American Mountain Men and
articles in Muzzleloader magazine. This is
his first book and is titled "What They Had
To Say - A Collection Of Sayings Engraved On
Eighteenth Century American Powder Horns."
For the past few years Ron has been making and
selling historically accurate museum quality
powder horns. These powder horns cover the
French and Indian War through the Mountain Man
era. In his research to insure authenticity he
has studied several hundred powder horns made
from the early 1700's through the 1800's. This
31-page reference book, most of which is written
with an old-time steel nib pen, is a collection
of sayings engraved by the maker or owner on
these old original horns. The book will be
signed by the author and, if you like,
