(wst) "This fur trader was at the mouthof the Columbia River, at Fort George, or as it was previously calledAstoria, at the time His Majesty's Sloop Racoon arrived to takepossession of the place in 1813. Henry's Journal of the important eventsthat transpired at this crossroads of Anglo-American commercial andpolitical rivalry became for me a rich source of information about theNorth West Company in which he was serving.Later I came to realize thatHenry's Journal was also a fundamental document for our understanding ofthe history and native life of the greater northwest of North America,from Lake Superior through Red River, the Upper Missouri River, theSaskatchewan Valley and the Rocky Mountains." - Preface.
