Pauline Weaver and the Mountain Men of Arizona

December 11, 2014 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

| Free

This presentation explains who the mountain men were, how they lived, and why they were in Arizona. Using a colorful presentation, Weber, clad in buckskins, focuses on the life and times of Pauline Weaver, Prescott, Arizona’s first white citizen, and other famous mountain men who made their way through this territory. Using photos, maps and filmed demonstrations, Weber explains the work these men did, the routes they traveled, and the arms, tools and accoutrements they used for commerce and everyday life.

 

SB - Todd Weber 400x230At a young age Todd Weber became enthralled with the stories of the fur traders, American Indians and explorers in American history. Through years of reading journals and studying historical accounts of the fascinating characters of America’s past, he became well-versed in the facts and details of this time in history. Along with being an artist and jeweler, Weber has worked as an Elderhostel coordinator and instructor. He now guides small ships on the Columbia River and in Alaska, and leads his own tours, sharing his appreciation for the stamina, ingenuity, and character that existed in those who helped shape the American West.
