about

Experience the adventures of the eighteenth century as The Fur-Lined Crypt takes you into the harsh and unforgiving lifestyle of the men who spent their very souls in the early North American fur trade. These men of grit and courage unveiled the mysteries of the hinterland and its uncharted rivers, forests, and plains, thus opening the way for civilization and settlement of a new continent. They surveyed, mapped rivers, and discovered previously unknown peoples. In the end, they lifted the veil of distance and found the land’s wealth and potential. They forged the requisite alliances with the native peoples who, provided the fuel that kindled the commerce of the day. A window into this lawless society reveals cruelty mixed with compassion, love overcoming hate, and survival in a dangerous world. This historically accurate chronicle is an intriguing yarn of human perseverance through the pain and anguish of living in isolation far from loved ones.

Born in 1934, Richard Jensen grew up on a modest prairie farm in southern Alberta, Canada. Having retired from a career in the petroleum industry, Richard now resides in Scottsdale, Arizona. He is also the author of Don’t Drink the Water, a self-published biography
