PEACE AND ATHABASCA RIVERS
PEACE AND ATHABASCA RIVERS—I would like to know what the trapping conditions are about Great Slave Lake, Canada, and if any boats run on Peace and Athabasca Rivers. Would also like to know if supplies would be hard to get in that vicinity.
Your questions relate to a territory approximately 600 miles north and south and 400 miles east and west—240,000 square miles. It includes stony mountains, prairies, woods, marshes, woods swamps, and probably land for every kind of trapping. There are boats and canoes on the Peace and Athabasca rivers, including steamers. You could purchase supplies there at the forts and settlements.
