Profit and Ambition: The Nort West Company and the Fur Trade 1779-1821

Profit and Ambition: The Nort West Company and the Fur Trade 1779-1821
SKU: 96726

Re-live the heroic days of the Canadian fur trade, a period of a little more than 40 years when a group of Montréal traders pushed the limits of European exploration and commerce west from Lake Winnipeg to the Pacific Ocean and north to the Arctic.

The North West Company was established to control competition among a number of independent Montréal fur-trading companies.  It brought together mainly Scottish businessmen and partners, French-Canadian voyageurs and their "country wives," Métis bison-hunters, and Aboriginal trappers and their families in a commercial enterprise which forever changed Canada's position in North America.
