    Enjoying "The Voyageur's Paddle"

    This is a beautiful story of a voyageur and his family and their relationships. It is also very informative in an interesting way in how the voyageur lived and served the great north woods and made their way on it's lakes. I especially appreciated the ending where the young boy proves his worth.
