Q: What exactly does a modern-day mountain man do?
A: When he's not spending time at his cabin in the North woods of Canada, Scott is traveling the Western United States visiting schools and telling fourth graders about the history of the old West. He shows his animal furs, plays his dulcimer, and shares tall tales.
Q: How long has he been doing his mountain man shows?
A: About 35 years.
Q: Can Scott come to my school?
A: Scott visits schools in the western US—mainly Utah, Nevada, Arizona, California, Wyoming, and Idaho. If you'd like to have him come to your school, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to see his upcoming schedule.
Q: What are the books he has written?
A: The newest book that Scott has published is Dear Mr. Mountain Man, an entertaining and endearing compilation of some of the favorite letters he's received from students while doing his mountain man program over the past 35 years.
Kipawa River Chronicles is the first book that Scott wrote: a chronicle of his adventures managing a fishing lodge in the remote woods of Canada—the place that eventually became home for his family.
