Extractions: Books on the Early History of Canada, First Nations, the Fur Trade, and the Canoe. Bill Buxton Last updated: June 4th, 2010 Introduction This page documents the books in my library, initially stemming from my interest in the fur trade in Canada. As my reading progressed, it expanded to include the history of the First Nations people who were here before, and upon whom the early Europeans depended. Hence, the still-expanding library covers the early history of Canada as a whole, its geography, and almost by definition, the canoe. I maintain the information on this page for my own benefit and use. It just helps me keep track of things. But, having made the effort to create it, is makes sense to share it, on the chance that some of the material will be of interest or use to others. This is a companion to a few other pages that I keep - all of which pertain to my books. One documents my books on Central Asia, the Himalaya, and Climbing. One is a timeline that helps me keep track of events contemporary with those about which I am reading. Finally, there is one which helps me keep track of some of the people who populate the books that I read - so far, only those having to do with climbing and the history of Central Asia. Links to all of these, as well as to my home page - where my contact information can be found - can be accessed via the buttons at the top of this page.
