Antonie Robidoux, 1843. At home in either the latest fashions of the day or the greasy buckskins of a mountain trapper, young Antoine Robidoux  proved himself the master of both worlds.  Within four years of first entering Santa Fe, he had become a Mexican citizen, was married to the governor's daughter and had been granted the right to control trade in  what would someday become western Colorado and eastern Utah.
