Abstract

This article examines the gendered nature of hunting as viewed by British traders during the early 19th century. In it, Vilbert middle-class British masculinity was constructed as a norm and elevated above the native's own views of 'manhood.'  Vilbert looks at trader narratives from the time period to see how the different types of hunters were viewed and examines traditional Western ideas of masculinity.
