BISHOP, Morris. White Men Came to the St Lawrence : The French and the Landthey Found. Beatty Memorial Lectures, Third Series. London: George Allen & Unwin Ltd, (1961). Pp (10),11-79,(1). 8vo, blue cloth. "Where today rises the proud city of Montreal stood not long since, as history goes, the dark ominous forest, and on the mount of Hochelaga the palisaded capital of the crippled King Agouhanna. Here came Cartier in 1535, to be followed by the bold, the greedy, and the ardent in faith and works. We read of three who are typical: Gabriel Sagard, the indomitable missionary, fighting with the Devil for the wild mne's souls; and Étienne Brűlé, the first coureur du bois,happier to become an Inndian than to remain a Frenchman; and Samuel de Cha mplain, the heroic dreamer, the saintly Father and Founder of Canada. The book retells an old story, one that is very beautiful and stirring, of men who, unwitting, made the destiny of half a continent." - from the dj. Vg in unclipped dj. 20.00
