With this, his first book, John C. Jackson has filled a void in the history of the American fur trade. The accomplishments of David E. Jackson have largely been overlooked by most historians even though a beautiful valley in northwestern Wyoming bears his name. Examining the experiences of one individual, the author demonstrates that the fur trade between 1822 and 1830 was a business venture rather than the aimless adventuring of trappers.
