Recreating the American Longhunter 1740-1790
By Joseph Ruckman
Softcover, 63 pages, 5 1/4″ × 8 1/4″
An exploration of the life, clothing, and gear of the longhunter of America’s frontiers.
From the author’s introduction: As the title implies, this book was written for those who are looking for some guidelines on what the 18th century longhunter looked like and the type of equipment he used with an eye toward reproducing it. But rather than limit the reader to appearances, I hope to encourage those who wish to do so to go beyond being 21st century men (and in some cases women) wearing funny clothes and shooting old-fashioned guns and move into the realm of creating their own 18th century character (sometimes called a persona) with a unique history and identity of their own.
