Looking for fodder for your next novel? I may have found it. And I’m a little busy right now producing my upcoming trilogy, so the subject is up for grabs.

The deal breakers: as was common in Indian society, McGillivray had at least two wives, the first the daughter of a Dutch trader/interpreter and a Chickasaw-French métis, and the second the daughter of a métis woman and a white trader/interpreter. Wisely, he maintained widely separate households for them … but that might make your challenge a bit too steep in the romance department. Well, I hope you’ve enjoyed reading about Alexander nevertheless.
