A Canoe Voyage Up the Minnay Sotor

George William Featherstonhaugh
1835 (journals published in 1847)

From Green Bay up the Fox River to the Portage, down the Wisconsin River to Prairie du Chien and up the Mississippi River to Fort Snelling; a sharply observant, multi-lingual Englishman explores pre-territorial Wisconsin on his way to the 'Minnay Sotor'

"... Amongst their other qualifications, I had required that those who were to accompany me should be well acquainted with the popular Canadian airs, and be able to sing them after the old approved fashion of keeping time with their paddles."
