Dedicated to the nameless coureurs de bois who penetrated the farthest wilderness, perhaps escaped to it, and lost themselves among the Indians who welcomed them, gave them friendship, family and position, and in the end, mourned them as of the People, with no memory that their skin had been alien.
First words
Foreword: Now and then, in a passing crowd, I catch a whiff of musky perfume that carries me back to my early childhood and the smell of sweetish, musky castoreum when someone, perhaps father, touched the soft belly pelt of a beaver to my cheek.
The evening sun lay warm and brooding on the upper Missouri valley and on the little creek that flowed from the eastern coteau, coming quietly through the yellowing timber of the canyon and a little more noisily over several beaver dams, one after the other.
