Someone could write a fascinating book about those pioneer American fur traders, from New England to Georgia, who sent pack trains westward and enriched themselves from sales to. After the War ofin the wake of the over-hunting of sea otters, American maritime fur traders took more and more beaver skins, which came via intertribal trade from New Caledonia, the northern interior of the HBC’S Columbia Department (the company’s administrative name for the Oregon Country).

The fur trade was a vast commercial enterprise across the wild, forested expanse of what is now Canada. It was at its peak for nearly years, from the early 17th to the midth centuries. It was sustained primarily by the trapping of beavers to satisfy the European demand for felt hats.

The intensely competitive trade opened the continent. Canadian fur traders and Mountain Men in search of beaver were the major explorers of North America and ultimately American Western Expansion.

In addition to the economic benefits of the fur trade, Mountain Men were a major factor in determining the boundaries of the United States, especially the Pacific Northwest.

From the best-selling author of Leviathan comes this sweeping narrative of one of Americas most historically rich industries.

Beginning his epic history in the early s, Eric Jay Dolin traces the dramatic rise and fall of the American fur industry, from the first Dutch encounters with the Indians to the rise of the conservation movement in the late nineteenth century/5(69).

Much conniving went on between the French and English fur traders while France and England kept up the war for mastery in America. The fur struggle and the land struggle continued between the two nations untilwhen France ceded Canada to England.
