Author Carl W. Haywood

began researching his book about North West Company Explorer David Thompson shortly after he returned to Montana in 2003 taking up residence in Thompson Falls — Thompson's namesake.

In 1809, David Thompson built a trading post near present day Thompson Falls. He kept a journal where he recorded his coordinates for the trading post and his travels through the area. These coordinates gave Haywood and wife, Linda, the information they needed to track Thompson.
