Image of item

First edition.

In the summer of 1535, Frances king Francis I sent explorer Jacques Cartier to the New World to search for the Northwest Passage that would lead from China and the East. It was hoped he would also return with ships brimming with riches and gold for the country. Alas, Cartier found neither the elusive passage nor a bounty of riches, but he did find the St. Lawrence River. Readers will learn about the details of Cartiers extensive travels, his encounters with Native Americans, and the many features for which he is named.
