Rocky Mountain Rendezvous: A History of the Fur Trade Rendezvous, 1825-1840. By Fred R. Gowans. Provo, Utah: Brigham Young University Press, 1975. Illustrations, maps, appendix, notes, bibliography. 312 pages. $4.95.
This aptly illustrated volume is a detailed descriptive account of the annual meetings between traders and trappers in remote Rocky Mountain locations. The author quotes extensively from the published diaries, journals, and letters of various participants, but adds little new information or insight to the history of the fur trade.
