"Beginning with the founding of the Hudson's Bay Company in 1670, the fur trade dominated the development of the Canadian West. Although detailed accounts of the fur-trade era have appeared, until recently the rich social history has been ignored. In this book the fur trade is examined not simply as an economic activity but as a social and cultural complex that continued for nearly two centuries." - publisher.
