Storyboard Text

  • This here is Bob. He would like to be a voyageur like his dad. There family is poor and they need money so that's why he wants to be a voyageur.
  • He is Bob.
  • He is Bob's father.
  • So, Bob left his family to become a voyageur. He has met his crew men Chris and Timmy and he is off! After about 15 to 20 minutes Bob had blisters on his hands and he was very homesick. Bob was the youngest one of his crew, of course, and got made fun of by his shipmates.
  • He is Chris.
  • He is Timmy.
  • After a while of rowing their boat, they came upon some rapids. Nobody wanted to go on these rapids so they got out and carried the boat. Everyone was fine about lifting it but Bob really hurt by how heavy this boat was. In his mind it was like 1,000 pounds!
  • Oww!!!!!!!!
  • After they had a good night sleep, they were off on the Superior. Since the bowman wasn't feeling 100% they went in the middle of the big water. It got kind of wavy at one part and Bob fell out! Lake Superior was very cold so he got back on as fast as he could.
  • They got to Grand Portage! When they got close enough to see it, Bob yelled so loud that Chris' ears started bleeding. Bob was so happy when he he figured out that this was this first place he has pork in so long. Yum!
  • Grand Portage
  • Whoohoooo!!!!
  • After this long voyage he came home. He really wanted to chat with his dad about all of it. Bob knew that he wanted to come back in the spring. This was very important to Bob's dad. Bob is now a man.
