by Arthur Ray



After a protracted struggle for control of the fur trade, the two chief competitors, the Hudson’s Bay Company and the North West Company, joined forces in 1821

Every book has a story. The story of this book begins with a question posed by my graduate supervisor, Andrew H. Clark (1911–75). After a protracted struggle for control of the fur trade, the two chief competitors, the Hudson’s Bay Company and the North West Company, joined forces in 1821. This merger marked the end of an era of bitter rivalry and set in motion forces which were to have a profound effect on the lives of the Indians of southern Manitoba and Saskatchewan.

Indians in the Fur Trade makes extensive use of previously unpublished Hudson's Bay Company archival materials and other available data to reconstruct the cultural geography of the West at the time of early contact, illustrating many of the rapid cultural transformations with maps and diagrams. Now with a new introduction and an update on sources, it will continue to be of great use to students and scholars of Native and Canadian history.

I found the information most interesting. I had hoped to learn of fur trade days into the 1880s and beyond. My ggrandf ather and his son ggrandfather both were employed with HBCin McKenzie district.Through educational books, such as yours I now have a more complete picture of the never ending physical toil of these dedicated men and woman. Thanks for suggesting this book.

There are probably only about three people in the world interested in this subject: you, me, and the author. That being said this is a jewel of a book in the genre of academic histories. Not the least of its virtues is that the author has included the astonishing total of 46 maps and charts to help the reader along. Given the usual sparse and inadequate maps of low-budget academic books this is much-appreciated.

The focus of the book is the trade relations between the Cree and Assiniboine Indians of Manitoba and Saskatchewan with French and English traders. In describing the trade the author drops in numerous pearls of wisdom about wildlife and ecology of the Canadian plains, Indian hunting strategies, inter-tribal relations, epidemics, and even details about the trade items most popular with the Indians and their prices in beaver pelts. One of the most interesting sections of the book concerns the role of firearms versus bows and arrows in Indian hunting and warfare. Another little gem concerns the Indian dislike of eating "red deer" meat. It took me a while to figure out that the Canadian author was talking about what we would call "elk" in the US.

This is a sound and scholarly history that delves deeply into the files of the Hudson Bay Company and other trading companies to paint what seems to be an authentic picture of Indian life on the Canadian plains in the early days of White/Indian contact. Highly recommended!
