BeschreibungExcerpt from The Michigan Fur Trade
This little study aims to give an account of the fur trader's regime in Michigan; to show the trading policy of the various nations which successively held sway over her territory and its results, and the gradual transition from the influence and domination of one government to that of another; to relate the story of the rise and growth of the various posts and outposts within Michigan's borders, the influences to which they were subjected and their fortunes in peace and war; to depict the life of the traders, their relations to the red men and to each other; and finally, to show what place these forest rovers, the frontier heroes of the State, hold in her history.
I wish to thank all private citizens, officers of historical societies, and librarians who have kindly assisted me in obtaining material sought. I am especially indebted to Mr. Clarence M. Burton of Detroit, who generously permitted me to use his large and valuable collection of manuscripts and books on the history of the Northwest. To Professor C. H. Van Tyne of the University of Michigan, at whose suggestion this work was undertaken, I wish to express my sincere thanks for the kind suggestions and helpful criticisms given while the work was in progress.
