(Booklet)

This little book gives an insight into the lives Orkney men led while working for the Hudson's Bay Company in Canada and into the lives of their First Nations (Indians) descendants. It tells of one family who have come full circle to be reunited after 200 years of separation.

Founded in 1670, the London-based Hudson's Bay Company was formed to trade for fur with the natives of North America. Company ships called into Stromness, Orkney, to take on supplies of food, water and labour - Orkneymen - before cross the Atlantic bound for Hudson's Bay.

 

A chance meeting with a Canadian tourist led the author on a trail to discover her First Nations relations in Saskatchewan, relations she knew nothing about until 1999.
