Nelson, George
Adult Nonfiction HD9944.U46 W66 2002

Comments  Summary

Summary: "The writings of fur trader George Nelson are wonderfully rich, vivid, and personal. Laura Peers and Theresa Schenck have rendered great service in bringing these writings forward, editing and annotating them witgh care and empathy. This is a significant work for all who are interested in Native and fur trade history and seek to imagine what life was really like in those times." Jennifer S. H. Brown, author of Strangers in Blood: Fur Trade Comapny Families in Indian Country "There was no other fur trader like George Nelson. He was a pure ethnographer of the world around him and of the content of his own heart. Like Defoe and Melville, he was a tolerant, sympathetic teller of truth, but he had his own clear voice. At long last, thanks to the splendid work of Peers and Schenck, he may finally get the honor that was always due him: a following of grateful readers." Bruce White, author of We Are at Home: Pictures of the Ojibwe People
