Arthur S. Morton

This history deals primarily with the fur trade and the numerous posts in the "Nipawi", or Fort a la Corne and Nipawin areas along the Saskatchewan River from the 1750s to the 1790s. It contains historical and field research by Morton on the various French, Northwest Company, Independent, and Hudson's Bay Company posts found in this region of what is today Saskatchewan. Morton also discusses the war between the Cree and the original Atsina, or Gros Ventre, inhabitants of the area, as well as trade between First Nations and Europeans.
