KIRKUS REVIEW

Fictionized biography of Robert Cavalier de La Salle. His childhood in France, younger son of prosperous landholder, his reluctance to become a priest, his restless urge to go to America, and -- once there -- to seek out the Great River. Personal adventures during years of seeking, meeting discouragement, lacking recognition for the great discoveries he had actually made, and finally, the Great River itself- and his tragic end. The book is young in format, which may discourage boys who would like it.
