Summary

Summary

This sweeping volume of the Hudson's Bay Company--consisting of Peter C. Newman's "Company of Adventurers" and "Caesars of the Wilderness"--is also the subject of a PBS documentary, "Empire of the Bay", airing in August. It tells of an empire that covered one-twelfth of the Earth's surface and shaped the destiny of a continent.
