About our cover: For 23 years the Las Vegas Area Council has held an annual Mountain Man Rendezvous, where Scouts mix with historical reenactors to learn about the traditions of the annual summer get-togethers which were held from approximately 1825 to 1840 in various locations in the western United States. Our account of this year's event, by freelance writer Nettie Hunsaker Francis, begins on page 20.
