2008

Premium

Summary

Born in 1833 at Fort Edmonton, Johnny Grant lived through and recorded many historical events in the northwest, and died within sight of the same fort in 1907. Grant participated in the fur trade, was instrumental in the early stages of ranching in Montana, and played a pivotal role in the Riel Resistance of 1869-70. His life and career exemplifies that of many independent Metis traders, and his memoir offers a fascinating glimpse into the Metis experience on the northwestern frontier in the last half of the nineteenth century. With an introduction by Gerhard Ens, Johnny Grant's memoirs will be of interest to fur trade and Metis history enthusiasts.
