About the Book

Robidoux Chronicles is an indispensable reference source for historians, students and scholars of the North American Fur Trade and Trans-Mississippi West, as well as for genealogists and descendants of the Robidoux lineage. Robidoux Chronicles traces with unprecedented documentary detail and completeness the pathways of the Robidoux lineage in North America from its beginnings with the immigration from France to Quebec of a single progenitor in 1665, to modern times, spanning more than 13 generations and thousands of descendants now spread out across the entire North American continent. Robidoux actors have figured prominently as Mountain-Men, Fur Traders and Pioneers of the Old West, and have been some of the key players in the relations between Native and Non-Native Americans until contemporary times.
