More Description

This essential volume of the highly esteemed Wisconsin Historical Collections is divided into four separate parts relating to the early fur trade in the Great Lakes region. The fur-trader's journal was written by Francois Victor Malhoit. Malhoit was a clerk assigned to a post at Lac Du Flambeau, among the wild Chippewa. In clear, vigorous language, he narrates the events of his daily like; drunken bouts among the savages, transportation of goods over a difficult portage, constant isolation and loneliness. The last two sections contain letters of the early leaders in the fur trade such as Alexander Henry and John Jacob Astor.
