If you like learning about trapping history, the Montana Fur Trappers Oral History Project is a fascinating collection to listen to. Back in the early 1980’s Edd Nentwig and Diann Wiesner conducted interviews of old timer trappers who cut their teeth trapping the frontier in the early 1900’s. Interviews include fascinating information, historical details, and some pretty amazing stories. You’ll learn a lot about how trapping on the landscape has changed, and hear legends of the old horseback wolfers who roamed the plains.
The collection includes 21 interviews with Montana fur trappers that you can listen to online by downloading them from the University of Montana Library.
