Philosophers And Explorers

By Luke Trytko

Why they had the greatest impact

I think that the philosophers and explores had the greatest impact on life today because without these men we may have not lived in this beautiful country called Canada. Also that without there insightful literature people couldn't realize how life was back then and how great literature is made.
