This is an excellent resource for students who are looking for more information about the fur trade, the voyageurs and the routes they followed. Not only does the book give an excellent historical perspective of the canoe routes used across the nation, but it also presents useful information to help readers understand these areas and canoe routes today.
A sense of wonderment at the voyageurs' accomplishments and an equal sense of awe for the vast Canadian landscape can be drawn from this resource.
Colour photographs, maps and historical drawings are used throughout.
