    Default The real reason being a Canadian voyageur was so dangerous.

    Forget about southern American banjo music, this long lost Hopkins painting shows the realities of the dangers faced in 19th century Canada on the voyageur routes. The North West Mounted Police eventually put the invaders to flight prompting the Americans to make a movie about it that involved cowboys or something?

    Lloyd I thought I knew all of her paintings. Very many thanks for continuing my edumacation. I stand in awe.

    The alien craft certainly explain the speed of the voyageurs. This is a fact pointed out in few or no books. Was this an early conspiracy?

    Thank goodness we were paddling in the mist or under tree cover on the Lugg this weekend, or I fear that would have been our fate too...

    ...remember, folks, stick to green canoes or the aliens will find you!
