Summary
Traces the trans-Mississippi fur trade system from the Green River rendezvous or the Fort Union post to the trading houses of St. Louis and the auctions in New York and Europe. Such factors as capital formation, shifting commercial institutions, the role of advanced market information, and the nature, kinds, costs, and speed of transportation are highlighted, as well as the relationship of the whole fur trade to national and international business cycles
