Pack your bags-we're going on an incredible trip! TRAVEL WITH THE GREAT EXPLORERS takes you on some of the most remarkable journeys of exploration. Discover where the explorers went, why they went there, how they got there, and what went right and wrong along the way. Jacques Cartier sailed west from France to find a new sea route to China. Instead, he sailed up the St. Lawrence River into the heart of what is now Canada. The king of France sent Cartier back to Canada two more times in search of a legendary land of riches. The French explorer never found the mysterious land, but he built a settlement at what is now Montreal-and began French exploration of Canada. Book jacket.
