Painstakingly researched, this historical novel Radisson and Groseilliers book the reader in many disparate worlds-in the villages of the French and the First People of this continent; in Peter Stuyvesant's diverse free port of New Amsterdam; on the frigid waters of Hudson Bay and inside its raucous trading posts; in the throes of the London Plague of ; in the intrigue-ridden Oxford and Windsor courts of Charles II; in taverns frequented by Samuel Pepys, Prince Rupert, and the shareholders of the Hudson's Bay Company; in the court of Louis XIV; and in the cloisters of ruthless Jesuit and Recollect priests who attempt to corner the fur trade and indoctrinate the Indians.

However, the plans fell through and Groseilliers and Radisson instead searched further south in New England in hope of finding a suitable vessel. Compromise plans were made to send Radisson back to the Bay to pick up the remaining furs and divide the profits fairly.

Like several of its predecessors in the settlement of English colonies in North America it was a joint stock company with governing powers and territorial rights in much of the northern part of the continent. He stands for all that is rich and colourful in an age of adventure and intrigue, brutality and imagination. He would lie, murder and cheat when it suited him.
