For Trade and Treaty:
Firearms of the American Indians 1600-1920

  by Ryan R. Gale $35.99  

For Trade and Treaty by author Ryan R. Gale is the most comprehensive work on the subject of Native American firearms to date. Filled with hundreds of full color images of dozens of original northwest guns, trade fusils, and treat guns, this book's wide 11" landscape format allows images up to 22" across the gutter. The book also contains new research, numerous fur trade and government invoices, inventories and other firearm records never before published.

Includes detailed, color photographs of dozens of French, English, American and Belgian made fowling guns, northwest guns, trade rifles and shotguns from collections throughout the United States and Canada. Learn how these unique firearms were made, decorated, proofed, distributed, repaired and modified. Many of these guns have never been published. New research reveals never before published purchase orders, invoices and inventories of the French, British and American governments and the major fur companies such as the Hudson's Bay Co., North West Co., X.Y. Co., American Fur Co. and Pierre Chouteau Jr. & Co. Learn who made the firearms traded and given to the Native Americans, in what numbers and various lengths and calibers.
