Alden House virtual talk

Join best-selling author Eric Jay Dolin as he chronicles the dramatic rise and fall of the American fur industry, from its beginnings with the Pilgrims and early explorers  to the advent of the conservation movement in the late 19th century in this virtual program.

Dolin’s book “Fur, Fortune, and Empire:  The Epic History of the Fur Trade in America” was chosen one of the best nonfiction books by The Seattle Times and the Rocky Mountain Land Library in 2010 and won the James P. Hanlan Book Award given by the New England Historical Association in 2011.

The talk is sponsored by the Alden Kindred of America with support from the Duxbury Cultural Council and will be live-streamed through Zoom.
