This book is affectionately dedicated to my wife. Celia hawkins schultz. Whose good comradeship and sympathy have been my greatest help in writing the tale. When in the seventies I turned my back on civilization and joined thetrappers and traders of the Northwest, Thomas Fox became my friend. Wewere together in the Indian camps and trading posts often for months ata time; he loved to recount his adventures in still earlier days, andthus it was that I learned the facts of his life.
While Uncle Wesley was with us, mother always let me put away my books,and not say any lessons to her, and I went with him everywhere in thetown. I liked best to go with him to the levee and see the trappers andtraders coming in, their bateaux loaded down with beaver and other furpelts. Nearly all these men wore buckskin clothes and moccasins, andfur caps of their own make. They all had long hair and big whiskers andmustaches that looked as if they had been trimmed with a butcher-knife.
