Based on an imaginary long-lost manuscript by Ian Alexander Bell Robertson invented by the author in order to integrate remarks by contemporary observers into the text. Gives a picture of the Northwest as it was immediately prior to the first white settlement and is based on sources that would have been available to the writer at that time.
