Abstract:

"It might be said that Canada was founded because of a fad of fashion - the insatiable demand for beaver hats that swept through Europe in the late 17th century. When it was discovered that the beaver existed in abundance in North America, the fur trade was born. As trappers in their relentless pursuit of beaver probed every stream and lake moving ever deeper into the wilderness, they pushed back the boundaries and opened the way for the settlers who followed them. Let Them Be Remembered, by Elizabeth Browne Losey is the story of the fur trade and the fur trade forts. Over the course of twenty years, the author and her husband, long interested in the fur trade, not only sought information from a wealth of sources such as fort journals and traders' diaries and letters, but also searched for and traveled to the sites of the forts themselves."--: //uwwebpro.uwinnipeg.ca/academic/ic/rupert/OrderForms.html.
