A compilation of trivia, in chronological order, does not make good history. You need context, you need to use your core story (in this case, the history of the fur trade) to say something about economic history or cultural history or social history, to write an excellent history book. Even (and perhaps especially) a popular history book. Dolin has failed to do this, I was very disappointed.
The narration is very good. It is not the narration that brings this work down.

Very thorough explanation of the progression and events of the fur trade, a large reason behind the early success of the new world.
