INTRODUCTION                                    ~~~The Bloody Land~~~

           Time marches on, we still feel like we're twenty years younger in our mind. Hard to come to the fact that we can't do what we use too or find it takes longer to get things done than when in an earlier time.

My name is Barry Buck Conner I have from time to time done a little research and written period articles of my findings. Some of those articles have appeared in publications related to living history and survival.


  • "Muzzle Blasts" NMLRA
  • "Buckskin Report"
  • "Buckskinner"
  • "Poke & Stroke" CSMLA
  • "On the Trail" COHT
  • "American Rendezvous"
  • "Tomahawk & Long Rifle" American Mountain Men Journal
  • "Front Stuffer Journal" PLRA
  • "Backwoodsman"
  • "Smoke & Fire News"
  • "Black Powder Report"
  • "The Colonial Society Journal"
  • "Colorado Collectors" journal.
  • "Smoke Signals" North American Frontiersmen Journal
  • "Amish Recipes" cookbooks
  • and short articles for magazines like "Sports Afield", "American Hunter", "Outdoor Life" and a few others that don't come to mind at this time.

One of my books "Success in The North American Fur Trade" is a collection of company records, reviews, and thoughts on the subject along with the history of the Northwest Trade Gun. Now listed in the "US Library of Congress" as a research book for students of the fur trade. Most of my work involves research (documented) on the wares used with in the borders of North America, found in museums and private collections.

          Needless to say I have a few years under my belt at many different time periods in North American History, this venture started in 1955 and continues.  Not bragging, just very lucky to be in the right place at the right time with friends and the adventure at the time ...

As you can see I love to swap, sell or trade...
