Marriages of fur traders to Indian women created bonds that helped advance trade relations. As a result of these “many tender ties" there emerged a unique society derived from both Indian and European culture. The essential role of women is gleaned from vital bits of information from trader's journals, letters and wills. Soft bound, 303 pages, 6 x 9" with map and illustrations.
