Description

Non-fiction, history-guidebook; 1800s to early 1900s in Pacific Northwest -- BC, Yukon, Alaska, Washington State. This is a new history guidebook written by Kenneth E. Perry and offers a brief historical account of fur-trading outposts in the Pacific Northwest. Accompanied by numerous historical photos, the book gives readers insight into the colonisation of the wild West Coast by the bold and hopeful men looking for a new life as they worked for trading companies. It is a testimonial to the various trading companies, particularly the Hudson's Bay Company, that built vast empires while settling a wild and untamed frontier. By following the history of these forts, readers will see how the Hudson's Bay Company controlled the fur-trading industry and merchandising supply network at the time and how they employed that sense of spirit and drive to be able to survive the test of time and become a major modern retail business. The book allows readers to revisit a great historical past through a comprehensive collection of western forts and posts. It also serves as an excellent reference and guidebook for amateur historians, students and travellers at large. "Frontier Forts & Posts" will take readers back to a time of exploration for and exploitation of resources, the likes of which will never be seen again. Full of historical facts on HBC forts and posts, place names, monuments and famous settlers, the book serves as a valuable field reference to many existing historical sites. The book is divided into a number of sections. The first section looks at forts and post in Washington State; section two is focused on BC; section three looks at the Yukon Territory; section four covers forts in Alaska; section five offers directions to a number of historic sites. The book boasts wonderful historic photos throughout and has an index and numerous references. There is also a map that shows the location of all the forts and posts in the collection.
