Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0920490360, Paperback)

Follow Paul Kane, Canada's first and most outstanding illustrator of North American Indians, on his expedition through the Rocky Mountains in 1846-48 – a journey which began at Fort Carlton near present day Saskatoon, and led him to Fort Edmonton, Rocky Mountain House, Athabasca Pass, and Jasper. 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.
