"The whole [fur trade] system is traced out from the Green River rendezvous or the Fort Union post to the trading houses of St. Louis and the auctions in New York and Europe. . . . This is an impressive achievement for a book so brief. . . . [It] opens out onto new methodological vistas and paradigms in western history".-New Mexico Historical Review
