Storyboard Text

  • "Joseph, I can't do this anymore. Ever since your father died its been harder and harder for me to take care of the crops."
  • " I know mama, don't worry I'll find a way to make us some money."
  • To help his family earn a little money, Joseph becomes a voyageur. When they leave the town to begin their heroic journey, they first stop at St. Annes church to pray for the fallen voyageurs.
  • When the voyageurs approached their first set of rapids, they thought that it was to dangerous to paddle so they decided to portage their way around, each one carrying 90 pound loads on their backs, some carrying two.
  • "Oh my gosh, this is so HEAVY. This is so much worse than picking blueberries at the farm. Your doing this for mama Joseph... for mama."
  • The voyageurs begin to enter the great Lake Superior. It is a long, hard journey through rain and white-caps. Joseph's hands are plenty full with bleeding blisters from his hard paddling.
  • The voyageurs arrive at the Grand Portage. After they have settled in and unloaded their canoes, they recieve a very hearty meal. Joseph thought that it was a nice change from their salt pork and mushy corn.
  • Wow! I can't believe that I've made it this far! Mama will be so proud when I come home with my yearly salary, I just can't wait. 
  • "Wow Joseph, you have grown so much! Oh, I can't believe your back, missed you."
  • After his visit at Grand Portage, Joseph decided to return home, for his mother needed him at home. Joseph had grown since he left, and was now taller than his mother.
  • "I've missed you to mama, I love you so much."
