    1 thought on “Caesars of the Wilderness: Company of Adventurers, Volume 2”

    1. Peter C. Newman is always readable and he weaves a great story in this popular history of the later fur trade in Canada. This is not a history text but something to situate those with an interest in Canadian history or the fur trade. It's substantial, but not academic, telling a story and focusing on characters.

    2. This was a very well-written and seemingly well-documented account. Anyone who has ever slogged through Sir Alexander Mackenzie's narratives will probably be surprised at how interesting the subject of the various 18th & early 19th cen. fur companies--and their rivalries and explorations--can be.
