The Mystery of the R---R

The clues: A replica Voyageur canoe and a bag of flour The file label: "R---r's gift" Who (or what) was "R---r?" The file label is too smudged to read. E.B. meets a Voyageur re-enactor and canoes downriver to a Native settlement, while Kyla makes flour at an historical, river-powered mill. They realize that the clues both have to do with rivers: Rivers helped the Voyageurs settle Canada, and were important in the daily life of early settlers. The file label must have been "River's gift" and the gift is settlements.
