  • "My hands hurt so bad," Charles explained.
  • "Here take this doeskin and rap it around your paddle," Jean replied.
  • A man named Charles need more money for his family so he became a voyageur but did not want to leave his wife and child for so long.
  • "What was that," asked Charles.
  • "It is a rock, paddle for shore," screamed Jean.
  • Charles hands had painful blisters and he was home sick. One of the voyageurs named Jean helped him a lot but the rest of the voyageurs did not pay attention to him.
  • This was Charles first portage. He did not understand why everyone hated portages. So he asked Jean and he said "you will see."
  • "I am going to go back to Lachine because I miss my family," said Charles.
  • "I think I am going to winter here so see you next year," replied Jean.
  • When Charles and his brigade crossed Lake Superior they hug the shore but had hit a rock. They got half way across the shore line of Lake Superior when they had hit the rock. They spent the hole next day repairing the boat.
  • When they got close enough to see the trading post Charles said "This is way cooler than I was expecting." Charles was so impressed buy the trading post he smiled the rest of the day and would not stop talking about it.
  • Charles decided to go back home to Lachine to see his family and is going to sign on next year. For the way back they got a new canoe and one new crew man. Charles said "It was an awesome experience."
