By River & Trail
The movement of supplies was critical for the survival of early settlers. The pack trains and river freighters were a lifeline to the rest of the world and ensured that mail was delivered and furs made it to market.

Themes List

River Freighting - The rivers provided access to many remote areas with the use of flat bottom 'longboats'.

Pack Trains - Teams of pack horses would carry supplies by trail into remote areas that could not be accessed by water.

Surveyors - A number of survey parties mapped the region's vast resources.
