Etienne Provost: Man of the Mountains by Jack B. Tykal
Dr. Fred Gowans (Rocky Mountain Rendezvous) writes, in the introduction, that "the events of Provost's life represent a looking glass into the total history of the Rocky Mountain fur trade. It would have been very difficult to find a person closely associated with the beaver trade in the American West who did not only know Etienne, but considered him one of the outstanding individuals of that era. From Santa Fe and Taos to the remote valleys of the Rocky Mountains and the executive offices of the giant fur companies in St. Louis, his name was known and recognized as one who knew and understood every facet of the business.
