Overview

The life of voyageurs was never easy. These rugged rFrench-Canadian men were the backbone of the early fur trade in North America. Living out of birchbark canoes, they experienced the excitement and dangers of long wilderness journeys, venturing thousands of miles through pristine lakes and river chains, carrying into the wilderness goods to trade for the precious beaver pelts that they then transported back to civilization to be sold and made into hats and coats. Exhaustive research yields this beautiful collection of thirty-one stories and accompanying paintings that brings the voyageurs back to life.
