Based on Mr Hudson's identity, the book is featuring destinations for gays, but not necessarily gay destinations. It is about travelling in style for everyone who is looking for something different and special - no matter if men or women, travelling solo or as a couple. Mr Hudson Explores shows that every part of a trip is an incredible experience. The core content of the book will consist of 20 cities in the Northern Hemisphere and showcases the very best the destination has to offer. Each guide will give a general introduction to the city and, if applicable, its relevance for the gay community. It showcases various locations on culture and art, the most inspiring museum to visit, traditional and upcoming food places, best shopping experiences, music and nightlife: Where to go out, which bars do have the best drinks, and clubs you can have the most fun at the city's best parties and concerts. Depending on the location, day trips and activities can be included. Luxury accommodations and places to stay complete the range. The book will not just give descriptions of the places but also background information, telling the story of the owner, history or anecdotes.

The authors show that meteorologic data and weather information recorded at the HBC trading posts over two centuries provide the largest and longest consecutive series available anywhere in North America, one that can help us understand the mechanisms and amount of climate change. They demonstrate that Hudson Bay is the second largest site of new bird species named by Linnaeus and reproduce some of George Edwards' colour paintings of these new species. Six informative appendices reveal how the invaluable HBC archives were transferred from London, England, to Winnipeg, correct previous misinterpretations of the collaboration and relative contributions of Thomas Hutchins and Andrew Graham, use two centuries of HBC fur returns to demonstrate the ten-year hare and lynx cycles, tell how the swan trade almost extirpated the Trumpeter Swan, explain how the Canada Goose got its name before there was a Canada, and offer an extensive list of eighteenth-century Cree names for birds, mammals, and fish. Informative tables list the eighteenth-century surgeons at York Factory and give names and dates for the annual supply ships.

The Company of Adventurers

A Narrative of Seven Years in the Service of the Hudson's Bay Company During 1867-1874 on the Great Buffalo Plains ...

The Hudson's Bay Company had been operating for nearly two centuries when young Isaac Cowie joined it in 1867. He sailed from the Shetland Islands to Rupert's Land, finally reaching York Factory, where he awaited his assignment. Company of Adventurers describes the early, lusty history of the HBC and the years of Cowie's service, when manufactured goods were driving out the demand for furs and buffalo hides. It contains rare information about the Assiniboin and Plains Crees Indians during the period before their confinement to reservations. Alive to the historical and ethnographic value of his writing, Cowie tells about his tenure as a clerk (later manager) at Fort Qu'Appelle in southern Saskatchewan, the colorful personalities who served with him, the wide-ranging fur brigades, remote outposts, and the Company's relations with Indian tribes. He was the first white man known to have set foot within the Swift Current District when in 1868 he hunted buffalo there. His dealings with the Mätis during the Red River Rebellion placed him where history was being made. In an introduction to this Bison Book edition, David Reed Miller discusses how Cowie fitted into a great commercial enterprise and how he became a victim of unpleasant circumstances that forced his retirement in 1891.
