The Young Fur Traders is a children's novel written by R. M. Ballantyne and first published in 1856.

This cute, comical and funny story tells the adventures of Charlie Kennedy in Red River Settlement, in Canada's early 19th century Arctic colony.

Charlie's father is a fur trader, but he doesn't want that kind of hard life for his son. On his journey, the young man will meet a native named Red Feather, who will tell him about his life and experiences.

It is notable for the magnificent descriptions of the landscape, with forests, plains and winter ice. It also offers interesting geographical data, as it is quite realistic.

The book should be read in the historical context in which it was written, when the problems of uncontrolled hunting were not known and there was no concept of extinction of the species.
