Jake wants to become a voyageur. So he can find adventure, but his family didn't want him to go.
Jake has become tired, Jake's group are not the nicest people ever. His muscles are sore he has been getting blisters on his hands. He doesn't know where the are going, and to top it off he is getting home sick.
OH Boy here comes my first rapids. Our steersman told us it wasn't bad. We want through that was so scary I could not paddle that hard. The next one will be hard I know it, but we will be okay.
I will be a voyageur again!!
Hear comes Lake Superior. I don´t know how we are going to get through. My steersman told us we are going to stay in the middle. There were rocks water going everywhere, I got wet.
I missed land so much!!!
Jake and the voyagers made it. They are know on land at Grand Portage. At the fort they are trading furs and other pelts. Jake and his canoe mates couldn´t be happier
Jake has decided he is going to return to Lachine with his brigade. Jake also wants to be a voyageur next spring. Even though Jake´s experience wasn´t the greatest he still wants adventure. Being a voyageur was hard, you had to paddle hard through tough currents, and you are always tired, but it was fun.
