Inhaltsangabe: In nineteenth-century North America the beaver was "brown gold." It and other fur-bearing animals were the targets of an extractive industry like gold mining. Hoping to make their fortunes with the Hudson's Bay Company, young Scots and Englishmen left their homes in the British Isles for the Canadian frontier. In the Far Northwest -- northern British Columbia, the Yukon, the western Northwest Territories, and eastern Alaska -- they collaborated with Indians and French Canadians to send back as many pelts as possible in return for an allotment of trade goods.
Über den Autor: Theodore J. Karamanski holds the bachelor's and master's degrees and a doctorate in history from Loyola University, Chicago, where he is Assistant Professor of History and Research Director of the Mid-American Research Center.
