"Le livre retrace pas à pas la vie aventureuse dePierre Dugua de Mons, gentilhomme saintongeais, né à Royan vers 1560, dans une famille noble, ralliée à la Réforme protestante. Sa jeunesse est marqu ée par la grande épreuve des Guerres de Religion auxquelles il prend part au service d'Henri de Navarre qui devient Henri IV. La paix revenue, il entreprend, malgré lopposition du ministre Sully, de redonner vie à l'ambition de la France de s'établir en Amérique du Nord, sur les terres découvertes au début du XVIe siècle par Verrazzano et Cartier. Nommé Lieutenant général en 1603 par Henri IV, il conduit en personne l'expédition qui, au prix de grandes souffrances, fonde les habitations de l'ile Sainte-Croix en 1604 et Port-Royal en 1605, berceau de l'Acadie. Samuel Champlain y participe, en qualité de géographe et cartographe. En butte à de nombreuses difficultés, il est privé de son monopole commercial, seul moyen de financer son projet. Un second monopole, d'un an seulement, lui permet d'envoyer Champlain établir une nouvelle fondation sur le fleuve Saint-Laurent : Québec nait en 1608. L'assassinat d'Henri IV, en 1610, qui marque le retour des affrontements entre catholiques et protestants, l'amène à renoncer à son titre de Lieutenant général en Nouvelle-France, en 1612. Gouverneur de Pons en Saintonge durant quelques années, il se retire, non loin de cette ville, en son chateaud'Ardenne ou il meurt en 1628." - from the back cover. Very good. 50.00
