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
- "Muzzle Blasts" NMLRA
- "Buckskin Report"
- "Poke & Stroke" CSMLA
- "On the Trail" COHT
- "American Rendezvous"
- "Tomahawk & Long Rifle" American
Mountain Men Journal
- "Front Stuffer Journal" PLRA
- "Smoke & Fire News"
- "Black Powder Report"
- "The Colonial Society Journal"
- "Colorado Collectors" journal.
- "Smoke Signals" North American
- "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
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 ...
