At the height of its power in the 19th century, the Hudson's Bay Company's trading territory covered one-twelfth of the world's land surface, with one man at the top of this vast empire of wealth and power: Sir George Simpson. A master businessman, Simpson was as comfortable in a canoe as he was behind a desk -- maybe even more so. He was famous in trading posts across the Bay's vast territory for making unexpected long-distance treks to check on the company holdings. In "Emperor of the North," James Raffan captures the many contradictions of this larger-than-life man who kept an iron grip on his forts, ensuring British power across the land.
