About this title

Synopsis:

Jean Morrison has written a fascinating and important book, full of drama and colourful historical figures. Rare paintings, drawings, maps and archival photographs complement her impeccable research and lively text. Superior Rendezvous-Place encompasses the French predecessors of Fort William, Native Peoples of the time and the evolution of the fur trade, with an emphasis on the North West Company era.

This most important work concludes with details of the reconstruction of the fort and the development of Old Fort William, one of Ontario’s "must see" attractions.

"Jean Morrison is a natural story teller, and hers is an essential historical document in the compelling history of Fort William, once the centre of the North American commercial universe."

- Peter C. Newman, author of Caesars of the Wilderness

"This book is wonderful reading. Jean Morrison’s prose is beautiful."

- Carolyn Podruchny, fur trade historian, Newberry Library, Chicago

From the Inside Flap:
