Book Description
The Last of the Great Fur Traders by Reuben Ploughman is the story of Reuben Ploughman, the last of the great fur traders, a born and bred Newfoundlander whose career with the Hudson Bay Company stretched from 1939 to 1979. The eldest son of John and Addie (Hedges) he was born in his father's hometown of Port Rexton, Newfoundland, in 1920. His father was a school teacher whose career took him to many places and the Ploughman family subsequently lived in Upper Gullies, Port de Grave, Bay Roberts, Coley's Point and St. John's.

"I worked for the Hudson`s Bay Company for close to forty years, having gone North on the tall ships, a three-masted schooner in 1939. I came South by modern jet. If I remember correctly, I think the pilot`s name was Julie Caesar, so it was a long time ago." Reuben Ploughman
