“The Mountain Man represented one of Frederic Remington's favorite historical subjects. He relished depicting the hardy trappers who hunted during the first half of the nineteenth century. In this statue, he has portrayed just such a figure descending a steep mountain slope with confidence and surefootedness. The Mountain Man was selected as the official Commemorative Bronze for the 1984 Inauguration of President Ronald Reagan - adding historic value to its intrinsic worth as a classic of Western art.” (Buffalo Bill Historical Society)
