Read about Kane's encounters with the Indians – Assiniboine, Blackfoot and Cree – which inspired his famous paintings. Excerpts from Kane's journal, condensed accounts of his travels, a representative selection of his work, as well as up-to-date map directions of his route recreate Paul Kane's colorful journey. Re-live the time of the Indian buffalo hunts and medicine pipestem dance, the exploits of the Hudson's Bay Company fur brigades, the days of arduous travel in winter over ice-choked rivers, and the comfort of simple food and shelter at each long journey's end.
