Reflections of French River

June Bittinger Smith
Illustrated by Jane Boyd

6 X 9 inches, 48 pages

CAN THE SONG OF THE NORTHLAND ENDURE MAN? In Reflections of French River, author June Bittinger Smith contemplates this question while retracing the route of the voyageurs, from North Bay on Lake Nipissing, down the French River to the Dokis Reservation and beyond. This historic canoe route was travelled by Samuel de Champlain in 1605 and again by Etienne Brulé in 1610. We hear arctic terns and ring-billed herring gulls and watch beavers make their dams in the ebony waters of adjoining channels. Beckoned by ancient pines our guide follows the river's granite shore and reflects on its strength.
