For those of you who are interested in the fur trade -- not necessarily of this part of the world but of United States -- Eric Jay Dolin has written a book called, "Fur, Fortune and Empire; the Epic history of the Fur Trade in America." The book is due to be published in July 2010; it won't reach Canada for another few months.
You can google him at www.ericjaydolin.com to get more information about his upcoming book. I look forward to buying a copy.
Eric, you will never get tired of talking about the fur trade; it is such an important and interesting business.
