The Fabulous Fireway
By Doreen Runciman, High River, Alta.
‘When Leif Ericcson and his Viking crew set foot on Canada’s east coast, they did little else that might have been calculated to leave an impression. Life on the North American continent rolled on undisturbed for many centuries more. The great, dark tide of the buffalo made its regular migratory trips across the plains and the Indians who moved with it hunted on foot, using flint-tipped arrows to secure food and clothing and building material.’
