Interesting stuff. I remember this part of American history being one of my favorites when I was in school. I love the picture of the fur trader. I liked seeing things like that when I was back in school too. History was one of the enjoyable parts of being there.

Can you imagine the smell in that small room! I set up an activity for the Boy Scouts one year and we were next to a taxidermy guy and the smell was...well not a good one. This guy tried to hid the smell, I bet the trappers back in the day didn't. Great photo.
