A Trapper’s Dream

by


When visiting my grandmother, she would tell stories of my grandfather trapping. He was a great trapper who worked very hard, but no matter how hard he worked sometimes he was forced to take home far fewer furs than he had hoped. He spent many weeks and even months on his trap lines traveling through harsh weather. I often wondered what he thought about before he fell asleep at night and what he would dream.
