Tombeaux

Video duration: 5:42Video has closed captioning.

The historic St. Croix River forms much of the border between Wisconsin and Minnesota. Before European exploration, it was an important resource for American Indians. Eventually, lumbermen came and took away the giant pines. Today, you can travel virtually through each of those eras via "Tombeaux" a videogame based on the river's history.
