Abstract

the search for the Northwest Passage, and the burgeoning China trade. In doing this Chapin dispels several myths, such as that Pond's maps influenced American negotiators of the Treaty of Paris in 1783 or Jay's Treaty in 1794. He also sheds new light on Pond's brief service to the United States government as an envoy to the western Indian alliance in the 1790s. A flaw in the volume that must be laid at the door of the University of Nebraska Press are the reproductions of Pond maps. The maps Pond produced were his most significant contribution. Unfortunately Chapin reports that Pond's original maps could not be reproduced with any clarity. Chapin was forced to redraw the Pond maps. The seven reproductions of Pond maps provided by Chapin are of considerable interest to any historian of the northwest, even though Chapin eliminated some of the notes Pond made upon the originals. Unfortunately the press presents the maps reduced to less than half a page and they are difficult for even the most diligent observer to discern. That said, the volume is a worthy contribution to the literature on fur trade and exploration of the Great Lakes and the far
