163 CHAMPLAIN, Samuel de) . ARMSTRONG, Joe C.W. Champlain. First Edition in dustjacket.
Macmillan of Canada, Toronto, 1987, ISBN:0771595018 
CHAMPLAIN, Samuel de). ARMSTRONG, Joe C.W. Champlain. Toronto : Macmillan of Canada, (1987). First Edition. Pp (12),xiii--xviii,[1]-318. Illustrated. Maps. 8vo, grey cloth spine, map endpapers. "The life of Samuel de Champlain is the most exciting adventure story in North America's discovery history. Almost singlehandedly, this seaman and former soldier from Brouage, France, seeded an empire on this continent, A meticulous observer and chronicler, experienced navigator, keen naturalist and ethnographer, and able administrator, Champlain was the first European to see North America's tremendous potential for settlement and agriculture, as well as trade. In this, the first comprehensive biography of Canada's earliest hero, author, Joe. C.W. Armstrong reveals new information about this famous but little-understood man- his amazing range of talents, his fierce determination and stamina, his hard practicality, and his breathtaking dream of empire. His life is examined in the context of his own prolific works, the detailed journals and mapshe published during his lifetime. After nearly a decade of painstaking res earch, the author has unraveled the complex and diffuse journals of Champlain. New light is shed on a number of long-standing controversies. The author shows that the explorer knew of 'the'great inland sea' of Hudson Bay years before the English claimed to have discovered it themselves. He also demonstrates how Champlain presaged the westward thrust of North American exploration over the course of the following century." - from the dj. Contents: Part 1: The Voyages 1598 - 1916.
