Definition of trapping:
An afternoon spent at Swift's ranch, roaming with him about his own particular little canyon, or listening to his yarns of mountain and plain, mining camp, trapping, and hunting, told with all the spirit of a born story- teller, is an experience well worth remembering.- "Among the Canadian Alps", Lawrence J. Burpee.
- "His Sombre Rivals", E. P. Roe.
Working in the shanties, trapping, making a little money from time to time as a guide or in trade with the Indians, that is the life for me; but to scratch away at the same fields from one year's end to another, and stay there forever, I would not have been able to stick to that all my life; I would have felt like a cow tethered to a stake."- "Maria Chapdelaine A Tale of the Lake St. John Country", Louis Hemon.
