The first class will be more general, looking at the fur trade across the Continent over hundreds of years. It will use a great deal of information from my forthcoming book, The Cadottes: A Fur Trade Family on Lake Superior.

The second class will look at one of the most important fur traders to operate in Colorado and Utah, Antoine Robidoux.

Both classes will be held in the Unitarian Universalist Church in downtown Grand Junction beginning at 10 a.m. and they will last approximately one hour.

More information about New Dimension classes, and registration information for theses and other classes is expected to be available early next week at http://www.newdimensionsgj.org.
