Rate this:
This set covers 1670 to 1873. It was an age of great daring and enterprise; of fur traders and trailblazers who opened up a continent. Flamboyant Pierre Esprit Radisson defies a governor to take New France's fur trade into the interior and later founds an English trading empire; tough Dene chief Matonabbee leads Samuel Hearne on a monumental trek into the Barren Lands; Alexander Mackenzie's dash to the Pacific makes him one of the most celebrated men of his age; and David Thompson, who comes to the forbidding shores of Hudson Bay as a 14-year-old apprentice, eventually unlocks the secrets of the West more than any other man.
