Trader King is the graphic and powerfully moving story of one of the most fearless and colourful traders of the Canadian North - William Cornwallis King - as told to Mary Weeks in the 1930's. Working for the Hudson's Bay Company from 1862 to 1903, King's story is an exciting first-hand account of the early days of the fur trade in Canada.

An excellent storyteller with a sharp memory and an eye for detail, King takes us on his travels with the voyageurs, trading missions with Indian tribes, and walks across the Barren Lands, facing forest fires and starvation and yet continuing to loyally represent the interests of the famous Hudson's Bay Company.
