Rate this:
The histories of Sir George Simpson and the Hudson's Bay Company in the 19th century are in many ways one, for Simpson's professional acumen and personal ambitions propelled a failing business to a position of great wealth and political power. Captures Simpson's many sides: a brilliant manager who kept an iron grip on his fur forts from east to west, ensuring British power across the land; a pompous dandy who was most at home in a voyageur-paddled canoe; a man ashamed of his illegitimate birth but who went on to sire 13 children; a master businessman who laid the foundations for the single greatest business enterprise of its day.
