Superior Illusions is an epic portrayal of life as experienced on the voyageur route from Lachine to the great summer meeting-place at Grand Portage. Drawing on his extensive research in voyageur diaries—and first hand experience paddling the route—Richard Pope presents a fictional young Scot, employed as a clerk by the North West Company. A recent arrival from Scotland, the responsible yet inexperienced Dugald Macleod embarks on his first trip “up country.” Neil Broadfoot’s original artwork realistically captures both the beauty and the perils of those turbulent times.
