Product Details


Dolin - In Fur, Fortune and Empire, best-selling author Eric Jay Dolin chronicles the rise and fall of the fur trade of old, when the rallying cry was "Get the furs while they last!" Beavers, sea otters and buffalo were slaughtered, used for their precious pelts that were tailored into extravagant hats, coats and sleigh blankets. To read Fur, Fortune and Empire is to understand how North America was explored and settled. As Dolin demonstrates, fur became linked to many key events in American history, including the French and Indian War, the American Revolution and the War of 1812, as well as to the relentless pull of Manifest Destiny and the opening of the West. Fur, Fortune and Empire is an epic history that brings to vivid life three hundred years of fur American experience, conclusively demonstrating that the fur trade played a seminal role in creating the nation we are today.
