Harold Adams Innis (November 5, 1894 – November 8, 1952) was a professor of political economy at the University of Toronto and the author of seminal works on Canadian economic history and on media and communication theory. He helped develop the staples thesis which holds that Canada's culture, political history and economy have been decisively influenced by the exploitation and export of a series of staples such as fur, fish, wood, wheat, mined metals and fossil fuels.
An agreeable marriage of good history and an equally good story, Soft Gold captures the essence of the most dynamic industry - the Fur Trade - of North America in the late 18th Century. Against this background, with crisp writing an unadorned description, Reiley portrays the lives of a lad from the Highlands of Scotland and a mixed blood native woman. The infatuation grows into love and all the bright prospects for a lifetime of bliss are overtaken by a clash of cultures. Readers will appreciate a finely crafted story based on reality.
