Isham - Adams: The origins of a family in the Canadian Fur Trade. The Adams families of Macdowall, Saskatchewan, are descendants of prominent fur trader, James Isham, and his Cree wife. This family history spans four generations from 1732-1898. The historical context of each generation is explained for the layman. Two appendices provide family trees that trace the Isham line to the British Domesday Book (1086).
Through four life stories beginning with James Isham, readers learn the history of European settlement on the prairies from the early Hudson Bay Company forts, through the early years of the Red River Settlement, to the creation of Manitoba. Both the 1870 Riel Resistance and the 1885 Northwest Rebellion are told from the experience of an Anglo-Metis family.
