Firearms, Traps, and Tools of the Mountain Men. ISBN. 0826304656 (ISBN13: 9780826304650). I for one could not believe the number of axes.

Loaded with information that you typically will not find elsewhere. This would also make a great book for someone looking for wilderness survival skills. This is also a great book for identifying early frontier tools and equipment. Carl Russel has a real winner here. If this genre of information appeals to you then get this book and learn about life in the frontier days..
Very informative in a college text book kinda way. amazingly detailed with a lot of insight.
