9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Jay Bailey on August 30, 2001
Format: Hardcover
This book should be in all school libraries. The excellent illustrations bring the accurate text to life in a compelling way. I give 2-3 hr presentations in French or English as a voyageur. This book certainly covers more than I can in such a way. I would recommend it whole-heartedly as background for anyone interested in the period and the characters.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By RogerOutWest on December 2, 2000
Format: Hardcover
Every spring in the late 1700's canoes would leave from Quebec and head for upper Lake Superior. At the same time trappers from deep in the central and Rocky Mountain regions of Canada would head for the same location with the fruits of their trapping labors over the winter. They would meet for a couple of weeks of trading and partying. Then they would laboriously paddle back to where they had come from.
Howard Silvertson captures this time with short clear descriptions and beautiful watercolors that really make the history come alive. It is a part of history that is often forgotten. It's fascinating to imagine what it was like to live in those times. This book captures the feeling. This book should be in every school library.

Howard Sivertson, the author, was just inducted into his high school Hall of Fame for his storytelling and illustrating.
This is a very interesting book and like all his other similar efforts, the narrative with the art work gives you a vivid
snapshot into the past.
