Hudson's Bay Company
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     The name Hudson Bay conjures pictures of polar bears, ice, and the tundra. Native people often called it the frozen sea. Arctic cold locks the land and water in snow and ice for months of the year. Why would anyone want to claim that land in the 1600's?
 
2     French traders came to Canada first. They traded for furs with the people. They mostly traded along the St. Lawrence and the Great Lakes.
 
3     There were two French traders named Radisson and Groseilliers. They learned that furs were better near the frozen sea. They wanted to build a trading post up there. The French governor said no.
 
4     The two traders went to Boston. They talked to men there. One of those men took them to England. Many men there liked the idea. They thought they could make a lot of money with the fur trade.
