1972. Details the route and lives of the voyageurs, from Montreal to Lake Athabasca in northern Alberta, 1500s-1800s. Also habits of beavers, and details of how snow in its various guises affects the plants and animals of the north. Good 1-page bibliography. Good photos, and a map.

Voyageurs: Made one trip per year, in a 2-stage relay: Starting respectively in Lachine near Montreal, and as far northwest as Lake Athabasca, from ice-out in (hopefully) early May, paddling 2 months to meet at Grand P

This book is part of the American Wilderness series on my shelf in my home library. I always enjoyed the pictures, and now I take time to read the text.
...we lived like deer or loons, measuring our days by the sun, eating when we were hungry, falling asleep when we were tired, waking up when we had slept enough. There is no better restorative for a mind and body wearied by the pace of civilized living.

I recommend this to all readers.
