    @williamself its a tune called C'est L'Aviron, a traditional song from France. While Mr. Fleming may have arrange the piece, he did not write it.

    @williamself -- The song is unnamed! It's part of the original score composed by Robert Fleming.

    I'd love to know the name of the very catchy song we hear at the opening of this film.

    Is the narrator supposed to be Sir George Simpson, the Hudson Bay Company governor at the time?

    I don't know how many times I put this film on for visitors when I worked at RMHNHS. I had it pretty much memorized back then: "...simple, lusty men..." - a definite classic!

    Wow! This film was played every year at my summer camp to inaugurate the annual colour wars- which was themed as a epic battle of Lumberman vs Voyageurs. I love it!
