Dream of the Settlers - Along the Great Lakes

44m 00s

The Great Lakes are among the most mythical landscapes of North America: endless water, endless forest. Many Native American peoples lived there; later European settlers followed on the heels of the white hunters and trappers. They hunted in the forests and transported their furs and other goods across the water to the south where a small river situated at the southern tip of Lake Michigan flows onward towards the southern states.
