Pierre´s dad chopped of his thumb cutting kindling and Pierre thinks that he has to be a voyageur to make money now that his dad can´t.
Pierre is on his way as a voyageur and is enduring hardships on the way. He struggles to constantly paddle and he gets treated badly by some voyageurs.
I'm finally here!
They traveled on the rapids. It was a tough journey. La Londe slipped and fell out of the boat. The voyageurs could not find La Londe. They were very sad.
Pierre went a little farther than usual off the shore of Lake Superior. The waves were huge and water kept splashing over the sides. Lake Superior was very hard to cross.
Pierre got to Grand Portage And he was very happy that he got there. He thought Grand Portage would be bigger. Pierre danced a little bit and had fun at Mukwa's house.
Pierre chose to come back home and not winter. He was very exited to come home. The water was drying up so there was some portaging. Everyone was happy when Pierre came home. He liked being a voyageur and will sign on next year.
