The Company of Merchant Adventurers to New Lands was an early joint stock association, which began with private exploration and enterprise, and was to have been incorporated by King Edward VI in 1553, but received its full Royal Charter in 1555. It led to the commencement of English trade with Russia, Persia and elsewhere, and became known informally, and later formally, as the Muscovy Company.

This is, without question, the best historical book that I have read in many years! It is part of a three-book trilogy on how the Hudson's Bay COmpany (HBC) shaped Canada. This second book is the strongest of the three, and focuses on the period from the 1600's to the early 1800's when the HBC was primarily engaged in the fur trade in Canada and essentially providing the civil, social and political structure to Canada west of Ontario. The descriptions of the Northwest Company and the struggles between them and the HBC are fascinating. As an American with French-Canadian and Cree ancestors who paddled for both the Northwest Company and the HBC, it was as if I found where I have come from. I gave this book to my mother's companion of 27 years as a Christmas present. He died in hospice in mid-March, but not before finishing this volume. He was a history buff, with no Canadian or British heritage, yet it fascinated him enough that he looked forward to reading it each day when he had enough strength. In his last days, I read to him out loud some of the passages that he particularly liked, such as the description of the goings-on at the Beaver Club in Montreal. A book that can give you something to look forward each day while you are dying of lung cancer has much to be said for it. Thank you, Peter, for this book!

Fine conclusion to the epic 3 volume set of the HBC story.
Page after page a revelation to this average Canuck .
The birth of the Canadian West- Red River settlements,Riel Rebellion, coming of the C.P.R.viewed as a complex,if hardball business deal between the rascally John A MacDonald and Canada's very own robber baron Donald Smith- detailed;warts and all. Commercial exploitation of the Canadian Native peoples and their lands to the present time here coherently depicted.The Bays final sad history in the coming of Canadian mass merchandising and corporate globalism,depicted in a portrait of its final owners,the charming Thompson boys,Roy Ken and David.

Complex non fic. history, long timeline, Peter Newman pulls it off. Incredible story, incredible people in the wild. Every paddler will enjoy. Lewis and Clark had it a lot better than the Voyageurs. As an outdoorsman survivalist history buff it hit my sweet spot.

The story of the Northwest Trading Company is the story of early Canada, unique and unknown by most. For those who like to read about texploration, discovery, and adventure of the American continent, this book is a must read.

thanks Heidi

I rad both volumes. The second volume was as fascinating as the first one. But if you are interested in Canadian history it is very fascinating nut just about the HB but also hoe England and Canada was dealing with surging US immigrants to the West. You must not be interested in history. I am a naturalized Canadian, both volumes kept my interest to the end.

This book is a review of a very successful real estate company in Canada. My more then exciting introduction is about how I felt about the book. There were facts, lots of them but overall no real excitement or much to get the normal reader interested in the book. I got through about 175 pages before I gave up. The author tried to punch up the book, but the subject matter did not lend its self to it, there is just noting scandalous or exciting about a well-run company. This is more of a 400-page case study best left to a university class on management. Unless you work here or are related to some on that does I doubt you would find much value in this book.
As a Canadian and living in the Arctic I found this book to be very informative and giving more insight to historic events than what are normally taught in our schools. Peter Newman was able to write this without the typical constraints associated with being "politically correct".
If you're interested in true Canadian History, albeit one small part of it, definitely read this book. If you want an exciting and riveting book and don't have much of an interest in northen Canada then don't read it.
Its amazing that the Bay, and to a greater extent the British, were able to be successful. They seem to be more like a bunch of bumbling bafoons.
