The Red River Trails
Oxcart Routes between St. Paul and the Selkirk Settlement, 1820-1870
Author Rhoda Gilman
Minnesota Historical Society Press (April 15, 1979)
The many difficulties and occasional rewards of early travel and transportation in Minnesota are highlighted in this book, along with the state's relations with what became western Canada and insights into the development of business in Minnesota. The meeting of Indian and European cultures is vividly manifested by the mixed-blood Metis who became the mainstay of the Red River trade.
