Buckskin Bill and Frank Stratton on the Main Salmon River

Frank Stratton, founder of Tour West, and Sylvan Hart better known as Buckskin Bill in the early 70’s at Five Mile Bar on the Salmon River.  Sylvan settled on the Main Salmon River in 1929 and lived there for 50 years. There is a great little museum honoring Buckskin Bill that you enjoy when you raft with us down the Salmon River.  Frank founded Tour West in 1969.  His family continues to run Tour West.  Although both of these great men have passed away their legacies continue.
