by

My First Years in the Fur Trade: The Journals of 1802-1804 (Wisconsin) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The journals of George Nelson, who as a teen-aged boy, managed a fur trade post in the early nineteenth century.

Book News Annotation:

Written when Nelson was between the ages of 15 and 17, these journals track his growth from homesick boy to weathered and experienced trader. The volume also tells of his daily work as a fur clerk, and the goings-on of the world around him; and it provides details concerning the lives of the other fur workers and the neighboring Objiwa peoples.
