"The current status of fur trapping and the fur trade of Canada is assessed. An outline of historical developments in the Western Arctic during the whaling and fur trade periods is given in order to place the colonization of Banks Island for arctic fox trapping in context. This is followed by an account and analysis of the process of colonization and adaptation to the 1960s."--Abstract, p. iii.
