Samuel De Champlain

Book - 1981
Rate this:
In 1603 when Samuel de Champlain first sailed up the St. Lawrence River, he looked out over dense forests and fertile valleys and was able to see in his mind's eye a flourishing dominion where generations of French men and women could prosper in a self-sufficient society. For the next 30 years, Champlain worked tirelessly to realize his dream. He charted new territories; he established a settlement at Port Royal and befriended Native people to help him; and he brought permanent settlers to Quebec to build homes and farm the land. The story of Champlain is the story of the Father of New France and a life full of adventure, danger, luck, courage, and sheer determination.
