Event details

***Please note this program is being offered virtually via Zoom.***

The year is 1842. Illinois is still a frontier state. The Oregon Trail is just about to explode. The era of the mountain men is over, but pioneer wagon train guide John looks back fondly at those days of trapping, fur trading and rivalry at rendezvous. Join us over Zoom as we interview John about his extraordinary life as one of the mountain men who inherited the fur trade from French voyageurs.
