Storyboard Text

  • Northwest          Company
  • I am so tired!
  • I need to help my family. Since Dad accidently chopped off his thump while doing my chores, he can not work as a voyaguer anymore. I need a job in order to help out. I should ask if this place has job available.
  • I hate this job! My arms are so sore and tired. I'd rather be at school than on this boat. I already miss my family. The crew is picking on me. Calling me a "Puppy" or "Grandpa". I can't believe I will be doing this job for 12 or more weeks!
  • I am so tired and back hurts. All the bags are so heavy. The portage is very hard work. And still all the men make fun of me. They pulled a prank on me just because they thought that I was too small to hold packages. All my blisters are bleeding. The only person that is nice to me is La Londe.
  • The waves are so dangerous. All ofthe sudden we hit a spot that the rapid became waves. I thought the boat was going to almost break in half untill  La Londe died from the rapids. Everyone was really sad, but over a couple days we had to keep going.  Then Charbonneau and Beloit got in a fight. It lifted most of the crewmens spirits.
  • I have finally made it to the Grand Portage! This means I am half way to being done with this trip. The Grand Portage looked sooo pretty! I also for the first time met the Ojibwe tribe. Their culture is very different but intersting all at the same time. I met this girl named Kennewah. She very nice to me and she is very pretty. 
  • I  think I have made my decision. I am going to go home. I have realized how much I miss my family. But, I will be here next time. I have had learned very much from this trip and I hope I will learn more things soon to come. I aperstate  La londe for helping me along the way the most that he could. But I am ready to come home now and I know he is home too.
