THE FRENCH EXPLORERS IN NORTH AMERICA

The contributions of the French in the discovery and colonization of the New World are recounted in a factual style, embellished only by illustrations in 2 colors. From the 16th Century when Verrazano's descriptions of the vast new continent inspired the nobleman Chabot to engage Jacques Cartier for a daring expedition, through the experiences of Champlain, Joliet and Marquette, the fur traders, La Salle, to the losses incurred as a result of the French and Indian War, six easily read chapters highlight the important events. Recommended as supplementary social studies reading.
