Mountain Men, Voyageurs, and Great Companies—The Fur Trade
The great fur trade opened up the American wilderness, established relations with the tribes of Native America, and made fortunes for French voyageurs, for the proprietors of the Hudson Bay Company, for John Jacob Astor's American Fur Company, and for many others. And it all hinged on the fleeting popularity of the beaver hat. It's a compelling story, one of the first truly American sagas.  You won't be sorry you signed on for the adventure.
