French Canadian variant of the Wild Hunt, a legend which interprets strange noises in the air as relating to a hunter condemned to hunt throughout eternity. In Chasse-Galerie, one or several persons together are able, with the help of the devil, to travel in a canoe through the air at tremendous speed.
Painting by Henri Julien. One of the favourite tales of the voyageurs was about the pact with the devil in which he promises to transport them back home in 6 hours. They were not allowed to utter the name of God or the devil would claim their souls (courtesy Musée du Québec).
