The story of the Hudson's Bay Company is told in this in depth, vivid account of the adventurous and complex history which gave rise to modern Canada.

 From it's fledgling origins in 1670 the Hudson's Bay Company rose to be a powerful political force that ruled the lives of thousands of people from the Arctic tundra to the Rockies and the Pacific Northwest. It transformed the culture and economy of many Indigenous groups and ended up as the most important political and economic force in northern and western North America.

Stephen R. Bown has a deep knowledge and understanding of the Company's history, which creates a engaging narrative which is both compelling and absorbing.
