On arriving in Quebec City, they learn that their father, with the Regiment de Carignan, is at Michilimackinac, and possibly ill. When her brother Philippe decides to go in search of their father, Madeleine refuses to stay behind. She cuts off her long hair and disguises herself as a boy. And then begins a series of adventures as the two children and their guide make the long canoe trip from Montreal up the Ottawa, over the height of land and down to Lake Huron and Michilimackinac. For a young girl it is an arduous trek, but Madeleine shows her high spirit and independence over the long days of paddling and the grueling portages. At a welcoming Huron village, Madeleine discovers something of the Native way of life and that the land is far from being a terra incognita to the original inhabitants. In writing this historical novel, Metikosh has done a superb job of recreating history as it might have been experienced by a young woman....

    A nice way for children to learn about Canadian history and the fur trade. Definitely upper elementary level. Girls may find this interesting as the lead character takes on the persona of a teenage boy while to make the journey with a coureur de bois .

    One of my favourite books when I was younger and still a fun, albeit very easy, read today. Good book for young girls.
