Apprentice clerk Hugh Ross was 18 years old and two weeks out from Scotland when his Ojibway guides took him to Grassy Narrows in Northern Ontario. From trading furs for the Hudson's Bay Company in the wild bush country north of Lake of the Woods, Ross was transferred in 1932 to the tourist areas of Minaki and Lake Temagami in Northern Ontario. His detailed descriptions of trade goods and practices are a rare source of information for students of the fur trade and Native studies.
