An Indian Remembers
My Life as a Trapper in Northern Manitoba
Author(s): Tom Boulanger
Thomas Boulanger was born in 1901 at Oxford House, Manitoba. His father died in 1917, and Tom was taken into the home of Rev. J. W. Niddrie – “a great-loving-heart minister” and was influenced by him throughout his life.
His account of the struggle for survival as a trapper and a buyer of furs, his concern for others, including non-Indians, is inspiring to our generation— seemingly too concerned with material wealth at any price.
