Born August, 1845, Norbert Welsh was the oldest member of the Metis pioneer group at Lebret. He was also the son and grandson of Hudson's Bay Company men, and became a prominent trader and buffalo hunter in the North-West. This book contains information on the near-extinction of Canadian buffalo, primarily by American tourists and hunters, and the subsequent effects to Indigenous peoples and access to resources. The book is valuable for its first-hand look at the role of Metis men on the plains as traders, freighters, buffalo hunters and interpreters, as well as their adaptation to changing economic pressures. .
