David Thompson: A Life of Adventure and Discovery


Elle Andra-Warner

David Thompson was an extraordinary explorer and geographer who mapped much of western Canada and was the first European to navigate the entire Columbia River. Anyone interested in the history of the fur trade will find this book especially interesting, because it makes the connection between the trading posts of the western interior and the fur routes passing through northern Lake Superior. As always, the author’s concise writing style delivers an incredible amount of information in an easy to read format. —Shawn Perich
