Temiskaming Treasure Trails -The Complete Set
by Peter Fancy
Measureless winds and suns chipped volcanic peaks down into ocean depths, and glaciers shaved earthquake folds flat. Then after water filled the rift valley of Lake Temiskaming, creature life crept on to the land. And later people came. Wandering through thick forests, they hunted wild game for food, clothes and shelter. ... Held close by families, though, the tribe grew strong in this home of sky, earth and trees.
In 1534, Jacques Cartier sailed up the St. Lawrence River in search of China, but revealed instead a lush wealth of Canadian furs. So Champlain, sixty-nine years later, with monopoly fur trade in mind, settled a Canadian colony at Quebec. Yet jealous Dutch and English traders would agitate the Iroquois to scalp the French and their Huron friends. New France shrieked treason when Radisson and Groseilliers persuaded London, England, merchants to start the Company of Adventurers of England Trading into Hudson's Bay. And then began the story of Temiskaming Treasure Trails.
