Prophecy of the Swan covers twenty-nine years within the historical past of the Peace River valley in northeastern British Columbia. A bright portrayal of existence in the most remoted fur exchange posts, it describes the serious pageant among the North West and the Hudson's Bay businesses, the people who have been thinking about exploration and trade, and, ultimately, the surprising 'massacre of St. Johns.' it truly is distinctive in its integration of old info and archaeological discovery, because it combines details recovered from a long time of archaeological excavation with first-hand impressions of day by day existence drawn from the few current journals saved through corporation clerks.
