Example text

Thorn set sail up the Pacific coast for Vancouver Island, where he heard there was rich fur trading. There he got into a quarrel with the local Salish Indians, several hundred of whom swarmed aboard the Tonquin. They killed Thorn and his crew.

Returning to the gulf the following year, he sailed up what he called “the river of Canada,” the present-day St. Lawrence River. In a series of expeditions in the early seventeenth century, Samuel de Champlain thoroughly explored the St. Lawrence and the surrounding region. In the name of the king of France, he claimed the territory that became known as Quebec and planted the first French settlements in the region. Champlain reached the shores of both Lake Huron and 59 60  Exploring North America, 1800–1900 Lake Ontario in 1615, the first time any of the Great Lakes had been glimpsed by Europeans.

He was convinced that Lewis and Clark’s route was probably not the best one Fur Traders and the Exploration of the Western Frontier  to follow. He believed that a more southerly route across the interior, following the Yellowstone rather than the Missouri River, offered a surer path to and over the Rocky Mountains.
