My newest #blogpost -- Many historians know who Edward Ermatinger was, but I wanted to know something special about the man. I found it:

I am writing about Edward Ermatinger, a musician in the fur trade. He collected voyageur songs, including one that said "I am very scared of the wolves."

You can't win an argument with a wounded American Bison (buffalo) Bull. Nope, you can't.
The North Saskatchewan River began its journey to the sea in the Rocky Mountains, an icy cascade that emerged from the base of a glacier. Its silt-shaded waters flowed past…

In 1847 Alexander Caulfield Anderson walked west along the banks of the mighty Thompson River to its junction with the Fraser, on his way to Fort Langley.

Here is a new blogpost on the Hudson's Bay Company brigades, and the requirements for their trails that Anderson must keep in mind as he was exploring the country between Kamloops and #FortLangley
Description of the HBC Brigades and the requirements for any trail that crossed the mountains between Kamloops and Fort Langley, on the lower Fraser River.

This is my newest #blogpost especially for those who love Maps 
The 1867 Map of British Columbia is of huge significance to British Columbia historians, native leaders, and writers of fur trade and brigade trail history.

Would you hire a man who had references such as Sam Black had? 
Chief Trader Sam Black of Kamloops had a long and interested career in the NWC and HBC before he was shot in the back by a Native man in his home post.

Here is my new #blogpost which includes a portion of Alexander Caulfield Anderson's `1867 map of British Columbia. This is the area around Fort Alexandria, where Anderson spent so many years.
The second leg of the outgoing brigade journey was from Fort George to Fort Alexandria, on the Fraser River south of Quesnel, and north of Williams Lake.

Here's the second half of a post I put up a few weeks ago, with link. How to write a book proposal -- non-fiction, of course. 
Continuation of a previous post on submitting a non-fiction book proposal to the publisher you have chosen. Read both posts for full sample of proposal.

This is the river that A. C. Anderson traveled down and up on his way to #FortLangley  and return to #Kamloops, 1846, 1847, & 1848.
A.C. Anderson's 1867 map of British Columbia shows the Natives' and furtraders' Smess, once a massive lake but now converted into Sumas Prairie farmland.

Introduction
I am Nancy Marguerite Anderson, author of The Pathfinder: A.C. Anderson's Journeys in the West [Victoria: Heritage House, 2011]
Alexander Caulfield Anderson was my great grandfather, and I wanted to know who he was. 
As I wrote his story, I learned things that threatened to destroy the historic and heroic fur trade figure that lived inside my head.
But those flinches transformed Anderson into a man, with quirks and flaws and character and a poetic courtesy -- an extraordinary human being.
