I became a voyageur because father had cut off his thumb and he couldn't get paid. Being a voyageur means i have to leave my home,friends,family,and the girl that i have a crush on.
I'm holding up well after leaving St. Annes, my muscles still hurt and my blisters still bleed. So far I'm getting well with most of my brigade. I miss my home and Celeste but my new friends, the voyageurs have given me a new comforting life.
My brigade decided to run the rapids instead of portaging. The rapids are very dangerous not only because of the fast waster but because of the big rocks in the water. Today we lost La Londe a very important man to the rapids.
