KIRKUS REVIEW

This ""informal history of the Rocky Mountain Fur Company"" is in our opinion the best book on the fur trade since Chittenden's unforgettable American Fur Trade of the Far West (1902). It is a fascinating account of the Company (1822-34) and of the man who controlled it, worked for it, fought for it. Carefully documented from contemporary records, written with the skill of a novelist, this is a delight for scholars and those young people interested in the pre-TV West.
