From The Barren Lands Book Signing with Leonard Flett 
First Nations Christian Writers book launch and conference
The lives of indigenous people in remote areas in the 1960s and 1970s are examined in detail. Flett’s successful career with both the Hudson’s Bay Company and the North West Company provides an insight into the dying days of the fur trade and the rise of a new retail business tailored to First Nations.

Leonard Flett is a Cree status member of the Big Trout Lake Ontario First Nation. He has been recognized by the Aboriginal community with the bestowal of a National Aboriginal Achievement Award in 2002, by Manitoba with the Order of Manitoba in 2012, and by Canada with the induction into the Order of Canada in 2004. He is also a recipient of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medal.
