Canadian outdoors-woman and popular author Agnes Laut vividly portrays the men who braved the western wildernesses of Canada and U.S. year-around to match wits with the fur-bearing animals at home there. She profiles some of the trappers, the animals they hunted, and the companies that monopolized the industry, from the 18th through the 19th centuries. Published in 1902, when furs were still widely used for coats or coat lining in northern climes. (Summary by Ted Lienhart)
