In 1841, aged just sixteen, the intrepid young Scotsman Robert M. Ballantyne (1825-94) joined the Hudson's Bay Company. Posted immediately to North-Eastern Canada, he spent five years traversing the region's inhospitable terrain by sleigh and canoe. His journal and letters home were so evocative that, upon his return, he was persuaded to publish an account of his experiences. Combining anthropological observations with descriptions of landscapes, plants, and animals, the account was applauded by the Dundee Courier for 'opening up a mine of information to the curious' and 'describing the everyday life of a novel and singular existence' with 'buoyancy and animation'. Appearing within a year of the first edition in 1848, the second edition reproduced here is illustrated throughout with views and vignettes. 'Free from tedious details and unnecessary wordiness', Ballantyne's fast-moving and readable narrative challenges many misconceptions about nineteenth-century Canada and its indigenous peoples

Ballantyne draws on his experiences as a clerk with the Hudson Bay Company to form the basis for this story in which he describes the lives of fur traders in the northern Canadian territories. The tale begins in the middle of winter and follows traders Charley, Harry and Hamilton (and their friends) as they learn the tricks of the fur trade and travel as fur trappers and emissaries to Native American tribes. As usual, Ballantyne includes a romantic aspect and fills his story with good humor. Snowflakes and Sunbeams combines the informative nature of Hudson's Bay with a complete cast of true and endearing characters
