''A Very Remarkable Sickness'': Epidemics in the Petit Nord, 1670-1846 by historical geographer Paul Hackett meticulously traces the diffusion of acute, directly transmitted infectious diseases from Europe through central Canada to the West. Significant trading gatherings at Sault Ste. Marie, the trade carried throughout the Petit Nord by Hudson Bay Company ships, and the travel nexus at the Red River Settlement, all provided prime breeding ground for the introduction, incubation and transmission of acute diseases such as smallpox, influenza, and measles.
