I feel like Schultz provided a good 1st person observation of the Blackfeet, based on his actual experiences. I'm glad I bought that book.

I agree, also the description of the wildlife, particularly the great herds of buffalo. Our ancestors have a lot to answer to.

Same here, The kangaroos and Koalas in paticular, they were hunted to an endangered species fot their pelts.
Now you have to be a bushman to find a koala in the wild.

I thought you just had to walk under a tree and the koalas would jump and attack you. grin

I'm reading something a bit different this time.

Great Loop Cruising Two on a Trawler


Seeing the eastern half of the U.S. from the helm of your boat is the ultimate adventure. It’s more than possible thanks to the lock and canal systems in the United States and Canada. This journey of a lifetime takes you on a navigable protected waterway of 5,000+ miles on the Great Loop Cruise. You’ll travel on the Atlantic and Gulf Intracoastal Waterways, the Erie and Canadian Heritage Canals, and the Great Lakes and inland rivers. You won’t be alone because every year more than 100 Loopers, so named cruisers circumnavigating the Great Loop Cruise, are part of a nomadic fleet of pleasure boats.

Read about our adventure and everything we learned – navigating and boat handling, planning a timeline and putting your land life on hold – to make this journey a part of your life.

We did the Loop Cruise on our 36-foot trawler, High Life and chronicled our voyage. In this expanded version we share the amazing places we visited, lessons learned about navigating some diverse conditions, and introduce you to boaters, also making the Great Loop Cruise, who we met along the way. We added more photos and online links to resources you’ll find useful to make your Loop Cruise a wonderful adventure visiting historic seaport towns, breathtaking natural wilderness areas and a host of coastal communities throughout the United States and Canada.

Katie and Gene Hamilton, authors of Coastal Cruising Under Power

Excerpts
“The cruising lifestyle is a lot like being in college. Living in a dorm, going to class and taking tests were oddly akin to navigating a boat and operating its systems. And, of course, there was always an excuse for a party.”

“Miles of the river ran in long straight cuts, while countless switchbacks had us retracing our steps through the almost total wilderness. Occasionally we imagined hearing the eerie banjo melody from the movie Deliverance.”

“It was surreal to realize that we were in a canal designed by George Washington and dug by slaves, and our GPS was getting its signal from a satellite in space.”
