Following the continent's waterways, the fur trade opened North America. Highways and airways have replaced the ancient river routes, but this fascinating history lives on.
Heartland's remarkable guide takes you from Quebec to Oregon, featuring stunning photography, dozens of maps and full driving directions to more than 130 sites.
Great for both 'take to the road' types and for armchair travellers, this expertly written and researched guide has won accolades from scholars and travellers alike.
