In 1800, 15-year-old Antoine Guilbeault bids farewell to St. Sulpice, Quebec, and heads up river with a company of voyageurs into the Pays d'en Haut, the high country of the far west, on a harsh, dangerous and joyful journey into manhood. This story emphasizes the hard work of earlier days, as well as, depicting the interplay between voyageurs and native people at a time when the border between the United States and Canada was uncertain and voyageurs, mountain men and native people mingled over much of the West.
