After leaving St. Annes Pierre does not want to be voyageur and belives his father shold be here not him. He would prefure school any day. he does not think he is getting along with his crew mates and only la petite, la londe and charbonneau are nice to him. beloit does not like him vary much, his cut and blisters have gotten worse and he is missing home vary much.
Pierre went on the rapids and he almost flew out of the canoe the rapids started off wide and vary fast but the farther he got the more narrow the river got and faster then when he though he could't be able to get through he got through on the way La Londe falls off
welcome home pierre
Lake superior was scary and dangerous.They decided to cross the middle lake superior. And right as they were about to stop at the island a seam ripped and the canoe started to fill up quickly.Then La Petite and his crew had to come and save them.
Seeing Grand Portage from a distance was exciting knowing that half the voyage is over and it they also have to worry now because now they have to haul everything to the portage
Pierre decided to return to Lachine to see his family, and return to school so he could be a merchant. being a voyageur was hard work ,but it was fun.
