The Company – Review

I loved reading this. It was essentially for research purposes, but the characters that created and worked for the Hudson’s Bay Company are so interesting it immediately became a page turner. Fascinating. Stephen Bown writes informatively and engagingly. He is never pedantic. The maps were helpful and it was good to be able to marry the portraits in the illustrations with the various characters. I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in Canadian history or the HBC.
