A young Indian boy in the Canadian wilderness north of the Great Lakes carves a 12 inch canoe with a kneeling Indian figure.  He frees it to take a journey to the Atlantic Ocean - a journey he wishes he could take himself.  The little craft sees many things on the journey; a forest fire, a wreck on icy Lake Superior, busy docks, peaceful farms, a hungry sawmill, and dizzying Niagara Falls.
You can follow the map along with Paddle as he lives up to his name, to-the-sea.
