Storyboard Text

  • I'm headed off to explore!  See you later, Mom, Dad and Argo!
  • Hi, I'm George.  I became a Voyageur because I love adventure!
  • I left my family in Lachine, Quebec.  My muscles ache from paddling. However, I'm very homesick.
  • See you next fall!
  • Goodbye!
  • Next stop, Grand Portage!
  • Bye!
  • I miss my family...
  • Are we there yet?
  • No, not even close, we've reached our first set of rapids.  Paddle hard!
  • My brigade paddled through the rapids.  We are sore and tired! The ride was very bumpy and thrilling to me and my crew.
  • Here, I brought this buffalo hide for you to use.
  • The water was harsh, but my brigade managed to make it across. I met some native Americans and gave them fur, axes and hides. 
  • When I arrived in Grand Portage, I felt tired but relieved. The fort was huge, and for a second I thought it was too big!
  • Phew, I made it.
  • I decided to winter over in Grand Portage to keep traveling west. I owe about $700 to the company. My experience of being a voyageur was very grueling.
