    It's a shame that the only way to bring Canadian history alive to my students is with a B&W film as old as I am. Yes, it's dated and it doesn't explore the bigger picture very well as we like to do these days, but it's all we have!

    Well-made! I wished I had lived back then. Thompson studied under the tutelage of Philip Turnor; HBC surveyor who travelled alongside Samuel Hearne and together they published journals of their explorations.. It's nice to hear Turnor is given honourable mention here.

    Loved this film, hope to see more. This Great Mapmaker I am proud to say was my Great Great grandfather on my Grandmother's side. There is proof of this.
