The Voyageur's Paddle
Hardcover - English

Voyageur is the French word for traveler, but in the Great Lakes region during the seventeenth century it described those men who made their living trading furs and goods along water routes. Traveling by canoe, these voyageurs helped to establish north woods trading posts and settlements, opening up the West to future exploration. Young Jacques's father is such a voyageur. He works long hours in bitterly cold weather, absent from home for weeks at a time. As he awaits his father's return from a season of trading, Jacques dreams of the day he will hold the canoe paddle and join the ranks of voyageurs.Author Kathy-jo Wargin is known for her many stories celebrating Great Lakes lore and north woods history including the 2001 IRA Children's Choice Award winner, The Legend of the Loon. She lives with her family in Petoskey, Michigan. David Geister's body of work with Sleeping Bear Press continues to grow and includes The Legend of Minnesota, also written by Kathy-jo Wargin. He specializes in historic art and has a background in commercial art. David lives with his family in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

About Author

Wargin, Kathy-Jo
When Kathy-jo Wargin was a young girl, each night after dinner, her mother let her choose between washing the dishes or writing a poem. Before long, she decided that if she grew up to be a writer, she wouldn't have to do any dishes. She has since learned that even though she has published more than twenty award-winning books for children, she still has to wash the dishes. Kathy-jo lives in Minnesota with her husband and her son.

Geister, David
Museums, book sellers and art supply stores in the Twin Cities were like a magnet to illustrator David Geister, who left his cherished hometown of Prescott, Wisconsin more than 20 years ago and moved to St. Paul, Minnesota. Since 2000 he has lived in south Minneapolis, and every one of his Sleeping Bear Press titles has been painted upstairs in the home he shares with his wife, teacher and author Patricia Bauer.
