Roche Percée, Canadian Illustrated News
1874, by Henri Julien

While resting on the banks of the Souris River, near Roche Percée, Julien completed this sketch of the North-West Mounted Police camp. With only a third of their expedition behind them, Commissioner George A. French was so worried for the safety of the column that he divided it into two parts, sending Inspector Jarvis and the weakest horses along a more northerly route to Fort Edmonton. This alternative route followed the old Métis trails and had a better supply of grass and water.
