In the latter part of the Eighteenth Century, Alexander Mackenzie, a Scots fur trader in Canada, carried out two extremely significant explorations of the North American continent. While searching in 1789 for a route to the Pacific Coast, Mackenzie descended the river which today bears his name and reaches the Arctic Ocean instead. In doing so, Mackenzie established that the long-sought Northwest Passage to Asia could not exist at a more southerly latitude and that consequently there could be no practical Northwest Passage. Mackenzie's second attempt to reach the Pacific proved successful in 1793. He thus became the first white man to cross the continent of North America from coast to coast north of Mexico. This is the account of his explorations

From Streeter: This is the classic account of Mackenzie's journey from Fort Chipeway on Lake Athabasca, here called Lake of the Hills, down the river which bears his name to the sea and back in 1789.

This journey marked the first crossing of the continent by white men
