The Mountain Man (1903) Remington described “The Mountain Man” as on of the “old Iroquois trappers who followed the Fur Companies in the Rocky Mountains in the 1830’s & 40’s”, probably referring to French Canadian trappers. The sculptor chose a dramatic episode in the daily life of a trapper, his and his mount’s decent on an almost vertical slope. Man and horse work together to make the trip down a treacherously rocky decline: The horse has been given full rein to choose its pace and path; the rider leans sharply back and balances himself by holding on to the tail strap with his right hand.
