Winner of the 2014 McNally Robinson Book of the Year Award.

This book is based on the journal entries written by William Tomison, a native Orkneyman hired in 1760 as a labourer by the Hudson’s Bay Company who rose to become “Governor, Inland”. These writings paint an outline of life at a time when smallpox swept across the northern Great Plains and the determined march west of European traders transformed North America forever. This book faithfully follows his journals, but has gone beyond them to recreate this turbulent period in our history. Given his egalitarian outlook and his vision for the west, William Tomison might well be called the first real Western Canadian.
