Burns & MacEachern, Don Mills, 1979. pp. [xviii] 278; map endpapers, illustrated, Manuscript Sources, Bibliography, Notes and Index. Fine/Fine From the dj: “Drawing extensively from Archibald McDonald’s letters, reports, and diaries, Jean Murray Cole lets the subject of this biography tell his own story: of the enmity between the Red River settlers and the violent, vindictive Nor’Westers, who were determined to destroy the Red River colony; of his years of service in the Hudson’s Bay Company, where he became commander of forts on the Lower Fraser and Columbia rivers; and of the long canoe voyages through the untamed Canadian wilderness.” A lovely copy; now out of print.
