About this product
- DescriptionJean Barman rewrites the history of the Pacific Northwest from the perspective of the French Canadians involved in the fur ecomy, the Indigeus women whose presence in their lives encouraged them to stay, and their descendants. For half a century, French Canadians were the region's largest group of newcomers, facilitating early overland crossings, driving the fur ecomy, initiating n-wholly-Indigeus agricultural settlement, and easing relations with Indigeus peoples. When the region was divided in 1846, they also ensured that the rthern half would go to Britain, ultimately giving Canada its Pacific shoreline.
