Inland Salish Journey: Fur Trade to Settlement

By Mike Reeb

History, 318 pages; 6" x 9"

ISBN: 978-1-879628-47-2

A grand history of the fascinating fur trade era and the Inland Salish Indians.

The years 1800 to 1877 brought the earliest fur traders, then the first white settlers to the Northern Rockies - the land of the Inland Salish Indians who shared a common language and customs. Drawn from source documents as well as journals, manuscripts and early published works, this book is the most comprehensive history yet of the fascinating fur trade era and the interactions between the Inland Salish and new arrivals.

Inland Salish Journey sheds new light on the native peoples during the pivotal period. The Spokane, Coeur d'Alene, upper and lower Pend Oreille (Kalipsel), Flathead and Colville tribes initially welcomed fur traders and were essential to an international enterprise that eventually led to enormous changes. This is the natural and human history of the Inland Salish during a critical time in their existence - from the fur trade to settlement - that forever altered their lives and the face of the West.
