The Longhunter's Knife
Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
A Longhunter (or long hunter) was an eighteenth century
explorer and hunter who made expeditions into the
wilderness for as much as six months at a time. Hamilton asserts that "The Long
Hunter was peculiar to Southwest
Virginia only, and nowhere else on any frontier
did such hunts ever originate" although the term has been used loosely to describe any unofficial American
explorer of the period.
The b&w photos were sent
me via email. The sender did not know where they originated from; any help in
identifying the source would be appreciated.
