" In the late 1970s an archaeological team was sent into a remote region of British Columbia to document the Nuxalk-Carrier Grease Trail--part of explorer Alexander Mackenzie's 18th-century crossing of North America. Mackenzie's journey was the first documented crossing of the North American continent, predating Lewis and Clark's expedition by eleven years. In the footsteps of Alexander Mackenzie tells the fascinating story of the archaeological field assistants who walked, traveled by horse-drawn wagon and lived among the Lhoosk'uz Dene--a people whose origins in the area go back 4,000 years" [Publisher]
