Jacques Cartier: Navigating the St. Lawrence River
The Rosen Publishing Group, 2004 - 112 pagina's
Thanks to the detailed journals and maps that were left behind by intrepid sailor and explorer Jacques Cartier, historians have had access to a fascinating tale of exploration and courage. In 1534, Cartier and his men undertook their maiden voyage from Brittany, France, to the ice-encrusted shores of the St. Lawrence River. This book re-creates these journeys for young readers. A special feature is excerpts from Cartier's journals, which the author has carefully interwoven into the text.
