More Information:
A comprehensive guide to the North American fur trade.

Beginning with the Native Americans, author Ryan R. Gale covers the North American fur trade comprehensively with informative text and clear, colorful pictures of surviving artifacts and period illustrations. Although the two dominant companies, the Hudson's Bay Company and the North West Company, are covered extensively, other smaller companies also receive due consideration, as do the independent hunters and trappers.

Chapters focus on the trade goods, the officers, the voyageurs, the food, conflicts and the ever-present challenge of survival in the harsh winter weather. The text is drawn primarily from surviving original documents, with extensive cross-references to facilitate additional study. Clear, detailed color photographs complement the in-depth discussion of the material culture of this fascinating period in North American history.
