About the Author

Heather Devine is an associate professor in the Department of History at the University of Calgary and is a researcher in various fields, including Canadian Native history, Western Canadian ethnic history, museum and archival studies, and public history.


A strong piece of academic scholarship that proposes an innovative and highly multidisciplinary approach. From a useful glossary of terms to detailed appendices and notes, this book provides insights for students and teachers alike and will undoubtedly prompt a reassessment of our historical understanding of the fur trade, Aboriginals, and the West.

--Robert Engelbert, Histoire sociale / Social History

Devine has placed herself a leader in the new discipline of prospography . . . [she] is the first academic to come close to describing why the Metis Nation arose on the Northern Great Plains.

--Frits Pannekoek, Great Plains Quarterly
