Fishing Lakes, Qu' Appelle River

Hind, Henry Youle, 1823-1908
In Henry Hind, Narrative of the Canadian Red River Exploring Expedition of 1857; and of the Assinniboine and Saskatchewan Exploring Expedition of 1858 (London: Longman, Green, Longman, and Roberts, 1860), Vol. 1, p. 321.

Henry Youle Hind, a chemistry and geology professor at Toronto's Trinity College, led an expedition that explored the Red and Assiniboine Rivers in southern Manitoba and the Qu'Appelle River in southern Saskatchewan. Hind's travel accounts, along with those of the contemporaneous Palliser expedition (1857-1860), helped promote the idea of Canada's prairies as a site for future colonization.
