Overview

The voyageur's highway was the route from Lake Superior along inland waterways to the Minnesota North Country. Countless people—explorers, fur traders, missionaries, map makers, lumberjacks, miners, naturalists—were drawn to the region's woods and lakeshores. Indians, French Canadians,Scandinavians, and Slavs all used the rich resources of the land to follow an old way of life or to find a new one. In a lively, clear style, Grace Lee Nute tells the fascinating story of their adventures and love of the land.

The Voyageur's Highway serves as a dependable source of historical information on the fur trade era, the opening of the Iron Range, and the loggers' way of life.
