Trappers

During the 1820's, a fur trapper, James Pattie, and his party made their way from Black Canyon on the Colorado River, along the North Rim, and on to the Zuni villages in New Mexico. Pattie published his adventures as a Personal Narrative, which was part fact and part fiction. Other fur trappers undoubtedly visited the Grand Canyon to trap beaver on its streams, but if so they left no record.
