LaSalle and the Rise of New France

LaSalle had the vision and the audacity to expand the boundaries of New France from a small colony along the St. Lawrence River to include all the land from the Appalachian Mountains to the Rockies and from the Great Lakes south to the Gulf of Mexico. He was not always loved, but he did build the first ship to sail on the upper Great Lakes. His story is riveting. He formed successful alliances with the western Native peoples and the fur trade flourished. New France and Acadia grew in population and importance. Much of the story takes place in southern Ontario, the Maritimes, New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Michigan and along the Mississippi River.
