Actor and storyteller Kevin Stonerock brings history to life during this fascinating presentation of the fur trade in the early 18th century. The "Fur Trader" is a true true-to-life character compiled
from a variety of fur trade sources. The trader, a
Scotsman named Jacob McLinden , takes the
audience on a journey from Montreal to the Indian
Country and through a year in the fur trade in the
mid-1700's. He familiarizes them with many trade
goods, fur-bearing animals, voyageur life, the fur trade
vocabulary, music, and the ways of Indians and
traders.
