Product Overview

In the mid 1600s, legendary fur traders Radisson and des Groseilliers were the first Europeans to explore the upper part of the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers. This exciting book explains how their trade routes helped open up the midwest of the United States and Canada and how their discoveries led to the creation of the Hudson's Bay Company, the oldest corporation in North America.

- previous expeditions before their partnership
- the rugged life of a voyageur
- the League of Friendship

- colorful maps and images showing the areas explored
- sections on the age of exploration
- the political climates of various countries that made explorers venture out into the unknown
- real recipes for foods the explorers ate on their travels
