Pierre woke up one morning to find out his dad cut off his thumb and couldn't be a voyageur which means they would be short on money. Later Pierre decided he would become a voyageur to help his family. But when he started his 1st trip he relized it wasn't as easy as he thought.
Pierre starts to get really bad blisters and everyone is telling him bad stories about what happens to voyageurs. LaLonde is one of the only older men that is being nice and comforting him. LaLonde helps Pierre out a lot but whenever he does the other voyageurs make fun of them.
