They explored North America, from the St. Lawrence River to the Mississippi, ranging f rom the Atlantic Coast to the Rocky Mountains and beyond. From the Huron, Iroquois, Algonquin, Sioux, Blackfoot, Cheyenne, and Comanche, they learned to travel the rushing rivers and to survive in the deep forests and on the open prairie. Many of these hardy adventurers ended up abandoning their European roots and adopting the culture and way of life of the peoples they lived among. With their Indian brothers and wives, and their mixed-blood children, they shared this land of plenty and freedom, this land of dreams. This is their story.
