Samuel De ChamplainBook - 1981
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.
