Annotation A story of bitter and complex rivalries. With massive towers and walls capping a limestone cliff, [Fort Snelling] defied attack. But it influenced movements and events hundreds of miles away. The Sioux opposed the Chippewa, the North West Company contended with the Hudson's Bay outfit, and Astor's American Fur Company fought them both. This book unfolds a forty-year struggle in the wilderness. Unrated.
