He is leaving because his father`s thumb got chopped off and they will go poor if no one works so he will go and take his father`s job.He is leaving his family and it will be dangerous.But he thinks he will be good like his father Charles La Page.
He's kinda nervous his stomach hurts in the beginning he knows some people he's home sick little bit.He kind of likes the people he is with and he is sore his hand hurts.
So they went to the rapids it was really fast they had to go steady so they don't flip over his hands were hurting bad they had a lot to go through still
Crossing the water was really bad because they had to face really bad winds super strong it was really cold waters his hands were hurting waves go bigger.
He was so happy his hands were hurting so bad he thought he would never make it there he was about to cry he was thinking about his family he had to go through cold water and big waves I don't think I have ever been so happy
So I have decided to go back home to my family because I miss them and to take a break i'm tired and my hands hurt so he goes back with his brigade and will not sighning up for next spring it will maybe be danger and it will be painful.
