Beginning at the age of twenty, he detailed the life of a trapper in his journal and recorded his adventures through treacherous terrain, encounters with dangerous wildlife, and confrontations with the natives of the Rockies. Osbourne would remain there—hunting, trapping, and living off the land—for the next nine years.
