Product Description

Review

"Pond was a significant figure in early mapping and the northern fur trade, and bridged a very important period in its history while contributing to his contemporaries' understandings of northwestern North America. "Freshwater Passages" draws together a wide range of sources and information to present a fresh, multidimensional portrait of Pond that greatly enhances our understanding of this complex and rather mysterious personality."--Jennifer S. H. Brown, professor of history emeritus at the University of Winnipeg and coeditor of A. Irving Hallowell's "Contributions to Ojibwe Studies: Essays, 1934-1972"--Jennifer S. H. Brown (09/23/2013)

"As an American engaged in the Canadian fur trade, Peter Pond contributed to the development and expansion of fur trade commerce among the native people of the Great Lakes region and the Canadian Northwest. There is nothing of its depth and breadth available and it especially brings to life the earliest days of the North West Company."--Theresa Schenck, associate professor of life sciences communications and American Indian studies and folklore at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and editor of "The Ojibwe Journals of Edmund F. Ely, 1833-1849"--Theresa Schenck (09/23/2013)

"Chapin crafts the engaging story of how this forgotten voyager, cartographer, and entrepreneur mapped the Great Salt lake and dreamed of being the first to cross the continent to the Pacific." Will Bagley, " True West"--Will Bagley "True West ""

"Chapin's biography is wonderfully written and enjoyable." S./i>--S. Matthew DeSpain "Western Historical Quarterly ""
