The Rocky Mountain fur trade was the final act in a world drama that began with Champlain, with Columbus, perhaps with the Phoenicians who first broke through the Pillars of Hercules.

$49.00Laramie was probably the most important single landmark in the history of the Old West. It was originally a base of trail-blazing trappers who built the first fort. Then Fort Laramie became a refuge for pioneer families who migrated to the West and made their way over the Oregon Trail. A station for the Pony Express and Overland Stage was established at Laramie and it was there that the Army set up its operations in the wars with the Plains Indians. Fort Laramie also saw the coming of the cattle industry and the homesteaders. Learn More
$76.00L.A. Huffman: Photographer of the Plains.
With 125 photographs from the famous L.A. Huffman originals.
Before the railroad came, in the time just before the last war with the Sioux, L.A. Huffman came to Fort Keogh as post photographer.
He set up a studio in Miles City. He went into forbidden reservations among the Indians. He trekked through Montana territory, went on hunting expeditions for the bear, the buffalo and the buck. He ranched to make ends meet. He explored deep into Yellowstone country, made pictures there of sights no white man had seen before; and famous warriors and scouts loafed in his studio and told stories of the days of Sitting Bull, Joseph and Dull Knife and Little Wolf.
