Part II covers in detail the years 1807 to 1812. This work is published from the original manuscript owned at the time by the editor and written by Thompson many years after he left the west. Scarce. Most of the David Thompson material was published by academic institutions and not ever produced in large numbers. A cornerstone work for any fur trade Western Canadian library.
