The fur trade became one of the main economic ventures in North America attracting, at various times, competition among the French, British, Dutch, Spanish, and Russians. Many Native American societies across the continent came to depend on the fur trade as their primary source of income. By the mid-1800s, however, changing fashions in Europe brought about a collapse in fur prices. Morse, Eric W. (1969).

I haven't finished reading this yet, and I haven't visited any of the sites. I would note that the book is poorly named; it would much better be called "Exploring the Fur Trade Routes of Canada" because most of them are in Canada, and in particular the substantial fur trade history of the American Southwest is totally ignored, and that of the Middle Rockies and the Columbia is given relatively short shrift. However, within its preferred geographic scope, it is an engrossing, well-written, and densely informative book not only on the fur trade but on many aspects of the frontier history of the region. It is also very well illustrated and if I ever go to Ontario to wander about and look into fur trade history, I will certainly bring it along. I would love to see a book in this vein that focused on the fur trade in the west.

Not exactly useful as a road map . . . but extraordinarily useful for understanding the history and the river routes of the fur trade by specific location. Beautifully illustrated with photographs, old paintings, snippets about nature, and vignettes of life as it once was, Huck's book gives an excellent overview and an appreciation for the scale of the fur trade and the people whose lives were transformed in the wilderness of what once was Rupert's Land and the Great Nor'West.

This is a great book with a beautiful layout. As the sticker on the cover advertises, it is visually very appealing. The text is well written and a joy to read. Would be great to have a digital version (Kindle, iPad) to take along on trips along the old trade routes.
