In 1534, Jacques Cartier departed from St. Malo, France, on a mission to discover the Northwest Passage. While he did not find this elusive sea route, Cartier's expeditions set up a new era for French colonization in the New World, particularly in the region along the St. Lawrence River. This exciting new book covers Cartier's three voyages, including his attempts to build colonies, and his interactions with the Native peoples who lived in the regions he explored.
