From Jim Turner after the show: I think we were talking about what happened at the mountain man rendezvous and I said I had a good quote:
“The rendezvous was a fantasy, a saturnalia. Everything swam in a cedarred haze of raw corn liquor and thousands of campfires and the Indians dancing around them all night, the incessant racing of the horses against spotted Indian ponies, the gambling games carried out wherever a blanket could be thrown.” —Frank Waters, The Colorado, 1946
