Jean Barman rewrites the history of the Pacific Northwest from the perspective of French Canadians involved in the fur economy, the indigenous women whose presence in their lives encouraged them to stay, and their descendants. For half a century, French Canadians were the region's largest group of newcomers, facilitating early overland crossings, driving the fur economy, initiating non-wholly-indigenous agricultural settlement, and easing relations with indigenous peoples. When the region was divided in 1846, they also ensured that the northern half would go to Britain, giving Canada its Pacific shoreline.
