Regular price CAD $19.00

Sea Otter Chiefs is the only existing set of life histories for the three great Northwest Coasts Indian chiefs (circa 1780 - 1860) who masterminded the development of the sea otter trade with the first sea-going capitalists from Europe. Based on the early journal accounts and narratives of the sea captains and community members, the book gives an insider's view of the world of Cuneah, Maquinna and Legaik - great leaders in small societies.
