Pierre Gaultier de Varennes et de La Vérendrye is best known for his explorations of the northern U.S. and Canadian provinces. Although he wasn't recognized as such during his lifetime, he is now regarded as one of the greatest explorers of the Canadian West. La Vérendrye built a series of trading posts with his two sons and pushed west, exploring surrounding territory as he went.
